This lithograph on white wove paper is horizontally oriented with a grid of light gray lines on a white background. In the upper right corner is a brown bagel-shaped form of squiggly, smeared lines. It has a horizontal line going straight through the middle.  Below this form are two cross section diagrams: one showing the bagel-shape form and the other, a detailed plan of an underground tunnel. On the left side there is a contour map with some blue and green coloring. There is a red line circle on this map and small words and numbers appear throughout the work.<br />

Gift of Suzanne Beutler
1980/2.171
In an ominous landscape a crowd of nude men, women and children, their bodies silhouetted against the descending gloom, struggle frantically to escape rising floodwaters. The figures gesture wildly and strenuously twist their long athletic bodies into a seemingly infinite variety of contortions as they clamber up the last hilltops and trees. A city stands on a hill and appears through the trees in the background.
