Visual Description : This abstract painting is filled with overlapping images. The scene takes place within a room that has multiple doors and blue walls. In the centre of the room there apears to be a group of naked people shielding themselves or struggling to get away. The figures in the foreground are bent over with their backs towards the viewer. Their faces are also turned away and are hidden in a white-coloured mist that looks almost cobweb-like. This mist fills the entire room. Against the wall to the left, there is a mirror and book shelf leading to a hallway with a door at the end. Next to the bookshelf, in the foreground, is an open white door.
