Visual Description : This lino block print is of a clown-like figure who is holding a stick puppet either hand. The clown is in motion, as if running towards the left side of the print. He is wearing a black-and-white-checkered outfit with long, black gloves and a black hat. His slightly distorted face is looking out at the viewer. The stick puppets, with the heads of clowns, have white faces, frilled collars with streamers dangling from them. Their shadows, along with the clown's are purple. The colours of this composition are purple, black, green, and white. There is a black, painted border around the print.
