Museum purchase made possible by the W. Hawkins Ferry Fund
This ink drawing on paper has a black wash ground, with two figures drawn in opaque black ink. On the right, a comic figure, in only boxers and a pointed hat, dances. His right leg has been kicked through a television set that he holds with his right hand. Scissors fall from his left hand towards what looks like a two-slot toaster on the ground. A black, horned beast lurks in the background, holding a phone overhead that has two earpieces, attached together with no cradle.  In the background, a headstone-shaped form silhouettes the dancing figure.<br /><br />
The drawing is signed and dated in ink (l.l.) "KOSTABI 1984".
