An oil painting on canvas depicts a still life composition of fruit. A black table appears at center laden with a large pile of melons, grapes, bananas, and an apple. Two eyes are painted under the front corners of the table in the form of a thick line circle within a pointed ellipse. The background is painted matte light gray.
