Description

This horizontal composition features a line drawing of a person on their side, with their arm pointing upward toward a yellow circle with black rays. To the left of the yellow circle there are line drawings of two faces with disembodied hands above them. To the of the larger figure's hand is a black and blue semi-rectangular object mimicking waves. To the left of that there is inscribed text, which continues to the bottom of the image, wrapping around the semi-rectangular object encompassing the person laying on their side. A red abstract shape fills the space to the left of the person's head. Text is also written on the bottom of the garment the person is wearing and below that, an abstract shape of blue with light black line mimicking waves.
