Description

A "jumble" of images. On the left is an Asian woman in a red and brown robe or Kimono. Next to her is a caucasian woman with blond hair. Donald Duck is on the right holding a pill. Behind him is a Japanese fighter plane. A sword crosses the composition. In the front is the upper half of a man's head. His arms are yellow and he is putting something in his hair.
