The very large yellow paper panel has a human figure painted on one side. The paper is cut in the shape of the painted figure, narrow around the head and largest near the elbows.

His head is in profile, showing the proper right side. He has a purple hairstyle, part of which may be visible behind the chin. His eye is outlined in purple with green detail. His nose, lips and ear are red. He is wearing a purple top with a green and red necktie. The red pants continue into red shoes. The pants have a green belt with a white buckle and red cross. There are four green buttons on the pants.
