Description

A painting of a man’s head in shadow with a black background. His face is shown turning to the side with an ear visible. He has a slight mustache and beard that extends upwards to the visible ear. On top of his head where hair would be, are four striped cones in alternating colors and shades of blue/yellow, brown/blue, white/blue. The cones are slightly bent on tops. On the ends of the cones are four- or five- petals sketched out in white. On the top left corner, close to one of the cones, is a moon with the bottom in shadow.
