Perhaps the most animated lithograph in the book, this work consists of earthy tones swirling around the composition. Colored tones of grey, brown, yellow, green, and red snake and coil throughout while the black lines, more centrally located in the composition, appear abstractly as human forms. Arranged in a criss-crossed fashion, the viewer can imagine faces and appendages attached to these obscure figures. Despite the chaotic nature of the piece, the composition is well-balanced, with the coiling forms surrounding the central black lines in a protective ellipse.
