This is a collage of black and white photographs showing parts of automobiles including mirror images of some of them, making the near symmetry a bit syncopated. There are repeated photos of two different couples, one of a man and a woman, the other of two men, photos of textiles and a photo of woman wearing similar textile, and a large hat in the bottom left corner.

This bright, busy assemblage resembles Mexican folk art. Some elements within it are irridescent glass marbles, shards of glass, three owl figurines, a blue feather, part of a white china plate with a floral design, pieces of brightly colored Mexican terracotta pottery, and a broken W. Goebel "Barnyard Hero" figurine of a boy and duck. All are attached to a blue wooden board.
