A depiction of a stone circle. The image of the stone circle is exactly the same, except in reverse, of the landward stone circle depicted in La Cathedrale Engloutie (1952). If the images are identical in size, this might suggest that the works are decalcomania part and counterpart, even though the works are a number of years apart.
