Printed on black paper, shades of brown with highlights of peach, pink, red, teal, orange, and yellow create abstract forms. The head of a coyote located in the upper left corner opens its mouth. An acidic green-yellow silhouettes the coyote's head. A paw of the animal is located in the lower right corner. Blue pastel fills the negative space surrounding the figure.
