An expressive drawing depicts an animal, profile, with it's head facing left, walking on all fours. The animal's head has been obscured in a large black blurry smudge. The animal has spots on his front leg, and it's form is defined through the shadows around the joins and limbs. Below the animal is a shadow, and behind the figure, thin delicate verticle lines serve as a backdrop to the animal's form
