Initial Letter O

Description

Initial letter O is capitalized. The letter is framed within a double-lined square. The letter is white on a black background, the background is studded with white dots. The letter is composed of one line that loops in a circle. The sides of the circle are wider than the top and bottom. In the centre of the circle is a grotesque human face or gargoyle, facing frontally, with vines coming out of their mouth. There is a symmetrical leaf where the figure’s body would be. There are leaves, flowers, and vines behind the initial letter and spread out throughout the innermost box of the square.
