There is large abstracted red face with one circular and one slit-shaped eye and a triangular nose. It has a stick-like neck and two lines coming from the head on the right side. Behind it in black is a nutritional information label (from corn) that covers the left two thirds of the background. There is a black photo of corn (overexposed) that overlaps with label. The blue gradient that fades from sky blue, yellow to a light red starts on the right third of the background.
