The print depicts a walled town situated on top of a hill. Farmland, with assorted trees and enclosures, as well as telephone poles, stretches out below the walled village, especially in the middle and lower right portion of the image. While the lower left foreground remains largely empty, a body of water, with a boat, is visible in the top left background. The hilltop town clusters around a tower, which is circled by birds. Clouds are lightly indicated, as is smoke rising from several chimneys in the village.<br />

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".
