A young woman with three eyes wears a sleeveless dress and a hat with large, swooping red feathers. On the feathers a small creature that’s half human half bat readies itself to make a jump. Behind the young women is a full-size creature like that in the feathers but it is standing wrapped in a red cloth. The other colors are white, cream, black and gray. Above the standing creature are the words “Le descanona”.
