(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. 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. (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. The middle of the form at the centre has yellow and red paint and a black squiggle with a line around it a a row of dots in a semi-circle above it.
