DESCRIPTION

This is an abstract work using primarily black ink on a white background with accents of red and yellow. There is a figure with arms raised upward at the bottom right, surrounded by dark black lines, inside of what may be a stylized human forn (without head or arms) or a vase. There is a form in black, perhaps a fan, or some sort of plant life in the upper left corner. There are two black half circles in the lower register.
