The fig element is a figure (sometimes called an "exhibit") with an optional title for a wide variety of content. A figure commonly contains an image or artwork, but it can contain several kinds of text objects as well. A title is placed inside the figure to provide a caption that describes the content.

Use the desc element to provide a longer description of the figure following the title.
