This image depicts four white figures against a solid green background. Each figure is depicted with loose brush strokes, having few discernable details but imparting a feeling of movement. Three of the four figures wear a round blue mask with almond shaped eye openings. One mask has a red paint mark, possibly denoting a feather at the top. The third figure from the left has no mask, but a round red nose and two round white eyes. All of the figures are accented by geometric forms and shading in green, red, and white. The outline of a red circle sits at the hip of the second figure from the left. A horizontal orange bar cuts across the lower right edge of the page.
