This richly colored vertical composition depicts a bearded figure with shoulder length orange hair. Shown from the waist up, the figure is clothed in an indigo robe. The figure’s head is turned slightly towards the left and surrounded by a green halo. The artist has outlined the figure with yellow pigment. The background of the composition is an amalgamation of abstract forms in jewel-like tones such as auburn, purple, indigo, yellow, emerald green and light blue.
