The image consists of the back of the head of a man dressed in 19th century clothing smoking a joint. The smoke forms the lettering and background from which a snake appears on the side. Also, a staircase rises from his jaw and continues up his head a bowler hat culminating in a gazebo with bunting which contains a woman in a 19th century evening dress. The dominant colors are black, white and red.
