A roughly textured shape of a pig appears to be carried over the shoulders of two figures, their heads and faces are obscured from view, and the visible skin peeking out from their bright colorful tunics is covered in what appear to be stylized eyes. In the background, a chain link fence is fashioned from thick lines of bright yellow paint. Below the figures' feet is a wooden plank walkway, sidewalk, or stage.
