It's a porcelain receptacle with a handle, containing hot water within which the leaves of Camellia sinensis have been brewed, and milk, squeezed from a cow....

Sorry!

Hopefully the competition itself will have guidance on the subject... other than that, it's pretty self explanatory. You could try googling...http://abduzeedo.com/abstract-colored-shapes-photography

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.

Graphic art generating visual representations, which includes commercial art illustrations and page layout expressed in traditional arts such as painting and lithography.

Or in other words.....It's a porcelain receptacle with a handle, containing hot water within which the leaves of Camellia sinensis have been brewed, and milk, squeezed from a cow....

Sorry as well.
