Visual Description : This collage appears to be paint (tempera?) over magazine pages. Together these media work to create the impression of a reclining woman in a red dress, with a gold flower pattern, on a desert ground. The brown paint that covers most of her face resembles hair which transforms, upon ascension, into a mountain range behind her. There appears to be a sun shining through the mountains in the upper-central section of the collage.
