Work Description: 
NOTE: The true nature of this composition is almost unreadable due to preservation concerns. However, the general subject matter can be discerned. A jumbled mass of both mechanical and anthropomorphic forms rise in front of a deep brown, mystical background. The forms are painted in shades of black and glowing yellow. An orange orb floats near the bottom right of the composition, and another, smaller, yellow circular form is located near the top, just right of center.
