Physical description

This embossed print uses the numbers (from 6 to 1, made out of dots) of the dice to create a picture. There is no colour or ink, just the embossed dots of the numbers to create the picture. Starting off with the Six, there are six rows of differently bent and embossed 6es going all around the four sides of the square print. The next set consists of five rows of 5s, then four rows of 4s, then three rows of 3s, two rows of 2s and finally just one 1, which sits right in the centre of the print.
