Description

A nude woman is sleeping on her back on the ground. Her arms are raised above her head and she appears to be restless. Above her are what appear to be figures from her dreams. From left to right there is a male figure carrying a horn and riding a goat, a person upside down and falling, a nude male whose arms are raised and whose face is blacked out, two nude women, and a man in a suit wearing a bowtie.
