[Recto] A dark image depicts three stylized seated figures in the foreground on the right, surrounded by tall stylized figures across the background. The three figures, from left to right, are wearing a blue dress, a mauve dress and a red shirt with blue pants (clothing). The figures in the background are dressed in robes of the same or similar tones, with the addition of one in a brown robe. The figures in the foreground are seated with hands in their lap, while the ones in the background are standing, walking to the right. The figures in the background have stylized faces angled towards the sitting figures.[Verso] A primarily blue abstract painting with a form in the central-right area of the image consisting of two conjoined oval-shaped forms outlined in black at the top and white at the bottom. In the centre of the form, there is yellow and red paint, with a black squiggle with a line around it and a row of dots in a semi-circle above it. The surrounding space is filled with swirling strokes of blue paint with some purple, white, and black mixed in.
