A male figure in the foreground looks at something on a woman's desk. She is seated and holds a telephone receiver. Behind her is a man looking closely at a painting on the wall. The woman states, "Excuse me, these are private papers." The painting on the wall consists of squares of different colors. The man in the foreground is painted in a dark pinkish red tone.
A tall bowl shape sits atop a cushion shaped base. Both the base and the vessel are covered with a complex series of patterns and textures. Vertical panels of yellow, light blue and black are further enhanced with texture and short curvilinear lines in gray and black. Rectangular cutouts are inside the black sections of both the vessel and base.
The sculptural earthenware piece depicts a person's head from the nose up. The eyes are wide open and atop the head are four shapes resembling ears of corn. The colors are predominately yellows and light browns with blue eyes. The face and hair are highly textured.
