This work depicts a naked man in profile, moving towards the right edge of the page. Both arms are outstretched towards the front and back, bent in motion. The body is depicted with very loose brush strokes, with a few discernable details such as two red nipples, teeth and an eye. The outline of a red circle rests at the back of the man's head. A vertical orange bar hovers in front of him. Behind him, a white bird with a yellow beak flies.
