This work is a double sided, mixed-media creation. One side is dominated by a large grey form in the shape of an upside down house. At the top, brightly colored strips of paper are woven into the grey area. The lower half of the background is a bright yellow and deep purple. Around the edges, geometric squares and circles of red, orange, green, and blue have been stamped in ink. Thin lines form circular and hexagonal shapes in the lower corners as well. The reverse side shows a black and grey checkerboard pattern, overlaid with geometric shapes in the upper portion in blues, oranges, yellows, reds, and greens. There are also dark semi-circles forming a border around the image. Stitching cuts across the work, in a large "U" shape, reach down towards the bottom of edge of the work.

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.
