This print is constructed of five horizontal bands of color with a semicircular shape at the top center. The bottom-most band depicts tightly clustered organic shapes with dark borders. The next band has a short, thick, curving line in the center, and a couple other dark organic lines above it. The third and middle band has some hatching and some circular shapes. The fourth band, or the second band from the top, is made up of horizontal lines, with many hatched vertical lines over top of them, reminiscent of grass. The top most band depicts a cellular-like structure, consisting of a diamond pattern. The semicircular shape at the top cuts through the top band, and juts partially into the band underneath it. The semicircle has an organic, circular line formation in the center.

"Although my impulse, as an artist, always came directly from nature, I never had any wish to be descriptive. The tangible things around me simply served as a visual and emotional stimulus that made things happen on the canvas. I am convinced that no matter how extensively abstracted the finished art work is from its original source, if its concept is the result of personal involvement, it will have a truth that no clever designing, no coy juggling of materials, can convincingly approximate. I was always more concerned and moved by the phenomena of nature - the wind, the sun, the light, the storm - than the objects on which they manifest themselves. Nevertheless the two are inseparably related, as the personal experience is tied to a specific event with specific objects existing in time and space." - Gabor Peterdi, https://www.artline.com/artists/dealers_artists/peterdi-gabor.php#artiststatement
