Four ambiguous figures can be seen in the middle, draped in coloured robes, mourning over a headless, nude male figure lying on an ambiguous surface. A brass headboard and a wooden night table can be seen on the left. A partial section of a bed baseboard can be seen on the right. The rest of the composition represents a collage of different colours and ambiguous shapes that overlap and blend with one another. Colours include assorted reds, blues, yelows, purples, browns, greens, and oranges. Black, white, and grey are used as well. The linework is minimal. The overall appearance is smudged and granular.
