In this print, there are line drawings and mirrored text in black at the bottom and to the right. The bottom scene depicts a partial figure in profile with lines coming from the head and a small equestrian figure. In the upper left of the print, there is a colored box with a larger profile of a figure in creams, red, yellow and blue. Inside the head there are a series of lines and shapes as well as drawings of small ants. In front of the figure's face there is a rectangular object with ants and other abstract shapes drawn on it. Below the figure's chin is the artist's monogram and the date. Above the figure's head, to the right, is a geometric pattern in black, white, red and blue. A long tube circles the base of the figure's head and extends down to the lower right on the inserted image. The print is signed (l.r.) and numbered (l.l.) in pencil.
