A fish lays horizontally on top of two black pieces of paper in the foreground. Variations of blue, black, and red fill the back in a pointillist style, moving in a gradient from dark to light away from the fish. Surrounding the fish are empty ovals and black and white photos. The pictures portrays an Eastern Asian family.
