A young woman's lower body is submerged in a pond; she clasps a bunch of flowers in one hand and holds more close to her breast with the other. A nearby swan stretches its long neck over to her, but on reaching the woman's mouth its head becomes a hand caressing her mouth. Trees, plants, hanging moss and reflections in the water form background. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/20/95)
