Abstract composition with blue, red, yellow, and black lines and shapes. Many of the lines appear to be frantic and scribbled. Some of the lines appear to form capital letters like D, E, and B. There could be a face on the right side of the paper with one black and one red eye and yellow hair and a yellow nose.

A menage of female figures lie entangled together, painted in many different colors. Certain body parts appear identifiable and are emphasized with bleeding lines. In the background appears straight-lined brush strokes emoting a fence or barricade much like one would see within a concentration camp. Beneath the watery brushstrokes are thin, precise lines.
