Description
Inscriptions/Signature

A young, blindfolded woman, supported by the featureless female forms beneath her walks into the rays of light coming from the sun (?) in the corner. Abstracted forms of mountains, clouds and birds fill the left side of the print - mountains at the lowest level, clouds at the center and birds at the top.
