This is a mixed media assemblage. Pieces of cardboard, paper, and other small objects are glued across a square piece of board, with a section of floral patterned papers adhered at bottom center. There are several gouges in the board with a dark material visible underneath. Fur lines the outside edges. A rectangular box is mounted above center on the board and is covered by nylon scrim. Doll parts are just visible inside the box under the scrim. Bottle caps are nailed to the outer edges, and a bird wing with a rhinestone brooch appears at top right. A black leather ice skate hangs from the bottom of the box at center.
