Multi-color poster contains a color portrait of Cesar Chavez by Octavio Ocampo in the artist's "metamorphic" style. This style creates optical illusions by strategically placing smaller images side by side to create larger images. The image of Chavez is composed of many small figures holding up signs reLated to the United Farm Workers. A landscape appears in the background with figures in the shape of skulls on the left and people marching with signs on the right. An airplane sprays pesticides over an agricultural field at upper left. An arc of angels holding crosses appears in the sky over a mountain range at top center. "Cesar Chavez / Portrait of La Causa / Octavio Ocampo" is printed at bottom center.
