Within this sheet, there are small figures at the center left drawn in black. To the right in the sheet, there is a collaged image of one of the artist's paintings, incorporated into a cube. Above, there are drawn birds. There is a small mechanical-like figure on the sheet at the bottom left. At the center of the print, in the cream page, the artist signed "Dali" and dated the print "1975.

Two abstracted, bust-length figures, one male and one female, look directly at the viewer with large smiles. The background is tan, and filled with swirling lines and scribbles. The face and eyes of each figure are outlined in thick green, the mouths in thick yellow. The “whites” of the eyes are red, while the pupils are circles of pale purple. Purple paint drips down from the eyes of the male figure, while the paint on the female figure drips upward.

Gift of The Daniel and Harriet Fusfeld Folk Art Collection

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.
