The standing figure of a woman has a skeletal head. She is hunched over with her right arm raised above her head and her left arm at her side. She is wearing a long blue-green dress with one pink flower on top and three flowers down the center of the skirt (purple, pink, and yellow from the top) between rows of red semicircles.
