A brass disc, as simple as those negatives. Whereas, if you really look at it, you'll notice that this is not just a disc. It's an object that you can find something you've never notice -d but arround you while you see through the TINY hole. They're special while you notice them. They're special while you think of them. They're special while you remember them.
