This is a mixed media collage on corrugated metal that contains a hash mark drawing of a male figure with a small head and a large rectangular body. The figure wears belted pants with no shirt, and several tattoos are visible on his chest including a cross, palm trees, "52", "PUTO", and a spider web. Small cursive text is crossed out across the figure's right shoulder, and appears to read [art so funny]. A geometric pattern of swirling ridges drawn in ink on paper is adhered to the top right corner. The background is divided with orange appearing across the top two and dark brown painted across the bottom half of the composition
