Summary:
This wall piece has a large, blue-black shape as its focus. At the top is a blue conical shape, and at the lower right corner is part of a metal ceiling, bent at its sharp edges. Most of the paint has come off of the ceiling piece; what is left is white and rusted. There are also pieces painted in faded yellow and pink near the top.
