A portrait of the singer Elvis Presley is featured along with his signature pompadour surrounded by other drawings and notations against a pale yellow background. This central area is bordered by a wide stripe in pale gray with rose-colored polka dots. Among the images shown are a dog, clock, anatomical heart, stacked rectangles, hatch marks and curls and arabesques reminiscent of Islamic textiles.
