 Subject: Silhouette of a human head in sky-blue, with at the base some white cumulus clouds, and above a brain in green from which pigeons in different shades of greenish blue-brown emerge, as well as two red-and-white radio masts with parabolic dishes and drum-shaped microwave antennas. It illustrates the evolution of communication from the times when humans used messenger pigeons to convey their thoughts and messages, to the modern transmission technologies used for this today.
