Creating a border, there is a large blue cylinder and a smaller yellow circle, with red border toward the middle right of the work. The last color object is a small green dot above the red-yellow circle. Throughout the work, there are black dots and markings. Creating a kind of pitchfork, there is a large black line drawing that follows three of the sides of the blue border. At the top, there is a simple starburst design in black (under the blue). In the bottom left, there is a small line drawing, resembling a bird. At the top of the print, there seems to be a residual hand print of the artist in black.
