This is an acrylic and water based oil painting on amate paper mounted to canvas. The composition shows a female face in black outline with her tongue sticking out and her internal organs visible. The figure is painted on a blue background that is framed with white paint to create a large blue oval at center. A band of orange is painted along the lower quarter of the canvas and slightly overlaps a yellow rectangle at the lower right. Beneath the outlined figure, a detailed portrait of a woman looking over her shoulder is partially visible, as is a symbol of an eye at upper left, and cursive text along the top of the canvas that reads "pareses et luxure" (sloth and lust). A small male figure, also with internal organs visible, appears in profile looking upward toward center at lower left where the blue, white, and orange parts of the background meet.
