A serigraph print with superimposed images in both the upper and lower half, divided by a line of four human skulls positioned in various profiles. The image on the lower half shows a black human skeleton curled into a foetal position. In the background is a triangular grey area with a lighter silhouette surrounding the skeleton. Behind that is a blue mottled background. The upper image shows a black and white barren landscape with birds on the ground. A rust coloured area with a triangle at the centre is imposed over that.
