Abstract white form on reddish background. The main shape occupies the center of the paper, stretching from the very bottom of the sheet to just short of the top. The top of the shape is composed of three triangular shapes, one pointing towards the top of the paper while the other two point to the left and the right. These are connected by a narrowing column to a half-oval at the very bottom of the sheet of paper. Much of the shape is outlined with a heavy black line, and the rest of the paper is covered with layers of red, pink, and white medium that frames the negative space of the central shape.
