The drawings or photographs should contain a sufficient number of views to make an adequate disclosure of the appearance of the design, i.e., front, rear, right and left sides, top, and bottom. The applicant may submit up to six different views or depictions of the design.

See 37 C.F.R. § 212.3 (E) (2); 17 U.S.C. § 1310 (G) (“The application for registration shall be accompanied by two copies of … [a] pictorial representation of the useful article embodying the design, having one or more views, adequate to show the design … .”).
