This print is an abstracted image of a bird-like face with large round eyes. It appears behind a series of empty white lines and spaces that makes it look like it is peering out of a broken window or mirror. The woodcut is summarily carved, leaving a lot of texture in the blue, green, brown, white, and pink patches of color surrounding the face.
