An illustration featuring two people in a kitchen. The person on the left is younger with curly dark hair and medium-tone skin. She's wearing a striped tank top and blue pants and is smiling and dancing while facing the person on the right, who is older with medium-tone skin and shorter gray hair. The person on the right is wearing a long-sleeved green shirt and striped pants and is smiling and facing the person on the left with her two hands up in the air as though she's dancing. In the foreground of the illustration is a plate with a piece of bread on it with purple jelly partially spread on it. The words "Embodied Tended" are in the lower right hand corner of the illustration.
