This is a black ink linoleum block print on laid tissue paper. The tissue is attached to paper, which is attached to a cardboard mat. The composition shows an aerial view looking down over the top of a sea bird with a long wingspan. A sailboat appears below the bird, cutting through water indicated in the print by a pattern of dense wavy lines. Smaller birds appear in the image trailing behind the boat at upper left.
