This is a mixed media collage by Kahnawake Mohawk artist Richard Glazer-Danay. The right side of the painting is an abstract combination of gray, green, blue and red shapes and forms at times highlighted with white dotted outlines. Along the lower right hand corner is a blue deer shape with a collaged red glittered heart over its chest. Directly below the deer is a collaged cut out of a gold sitting rabbit. Following one of the two large white lines across the right are stamped bald eagles. In the upper right corner is a collaged cut out of a sleeping cat. On the left side against a black background, geometric shapes and figures are outlined in white dotted lines, the most prominent of which is a cat and a set of cat pawprints in solid white.
