CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A black and white abstract image depicts a figure standing on a patch of grass with three birds (animals) on it. A variety of patterns are used to give the image texture, including on their wavy vest (clothing), the short vertical lines that denote the grass, and the crosshatching in the birds' wings. The figure's face is black on the right side and they are bald except for the tufts of hair over their ears. The background is white.
