This is a black ink linoleum print on tissue paper. The composition shows fish swimming among underwater vegetation. A quarter circle with three outer rings appears at lower right. Extending from this circle are two stems, the upper of which has four fan-shaped leaves with curling fronds. A fish in profile swims between the leaves of the vegetation at center and another fish seen from above appears at lower left. The background is carved with multiple thin wavy horizontal lines.

2008.0.27.3 is the linoleum block used to create 2009.64.17
