An aquatic bird loops while eating its catch of the day, a fish. Truncated wings rise above the from the bird figure’s back, while the neck slopes rightward towards the

oblong head, at the centre, a red eye beams. The beak’s form is created through lineation by tint. Two legs stand upon a prostrate fish which has a texture suggesting scales as dots, with the head partition by a white curve and a red dot for its eye. The bird’s body appears, upon further study, to be an elephant head or a canine creature’s head.
