```Sorry about that, a line somehow got lost in the code I sent earlier, I
really do not know how. Anyway, the following is the same code with the
missing line. I have separated it into individual steps to make it easier to
see what is going on. (The missing line is Input[6] below).

In[1]:=
<<Graphics`Arrow`

In[2]:=
angle = Pi/4; pl = ParametricPlot[{Cos[t], Sin[t]},
{t, 0, angle}, AspectRatio -> Automatic, Axes -> False,
DisplayFunction -> Identity];

In[3]:=
P = {Cos[angle], Sin[angle]};

In[4]:=
T = {-Sin[angle], Cos[angle]};

In[5]:=
ar = Graphics[Arrow[P, P + 0.2*T, HeadLength -> 0.5]];

In[6]:=
gr=Show[{pl,ar}];

In[7]:=
rt =Rectangle[{0.5, 0.}, {1, 0.6},gr];

In[8]:=
Show[Graphics[{Line[{{1, 1}, {0, 0}, {1, 0}}], rt}],
DisplayFunction -> \$DisplayFunction];
