The design shows a stalk of grain growing from the soil. Along the length of the stalk and head of grain, the above quotation is sawn from the material. Two lines of grains, one representing the seven days and the other the seven weeks. Counting is done by moving two yellow grains in each line as shown in the side picture (the picture shows five weeks and two days of the count).
