The female figure is shown only partially and appears to be assuming the form of a tree. The unicorn is shown in side profile, running towards the female figure. Grouped together in the background are a solid mass of horizontal lines, ambiguous circular floating shapes, and an image resembling a tree on a hill. Black and the colour of the support material used for the print are the only colours used.
