In two vertical rows at the center of the lithograph, there are eight reclining abstract figures. Each pair is colored the same but the designs for each reclining figure are distinct: colors from top to bottom are purple, brown, orange, blue. There is an allover wash of grey in the background and then darker marks and crosshatching around the figures to suggest shadow. The artist's signature and the date is in the stone (l.r. reversed) "Moore / 67.". The artist's signature, date and number is also in pencil "Moore / 67." (l.r.) and "29/50" (l.c.).
