7-sided frame made of reclaimed wood moulding and slats nailed together and backed with strips of green felt, possibly from a pool table. Gold wire traces the wood frame, and is accented with a fuzz ball or googly eye at each corner. A toy car is placed on the gold wire “track” at bottom center; car racing flag stickers attached to the frame in a couple places. Three pieces of thread are strung horizontally across the frame, a “spider web” attached to top two lines with puffy paint. A wood (?) cutout of a smiling joker mouth hung from web by wire.

At the center of this print, there is a large bust in a variety of colors (orange, yellow, green, black, blue) and a kind of floating hat in brown and purple. The face is created by a series of collaged images. There is a mouth and one eye on the head and another collaged mouth sits at the edge of the figure's clothing, like a brooch. Coming out from the right side of the head, there is a line drawing of a woman's profile with lines emanating from her eyes and ear. In the background, there is a simple landscape. The print is signed (l.r.) and numbered (l.l.) in pencil.
