A figure constructed from geomentric shapes. The man's feet have been changed into a single wheel and he is leaning on a crutch. His pants are constructed of blue and orange patches. The figure's head is both wearing a sorcerer's hat and a top hat. Written over his shoulder in black and white is the word, "discours".
