20 Remarks
20 Description Most of the composition is occupied by a big black silhouette of fantastic half-length figure painted against a light background (unpainted paper). The figure reminding a human figure is depicted in profile, facing left. It has a blue eye with white eyebrow and yellow Hebrew letter "Aleph" in place of its pupil, a big tooth-jaw,and a camp reminding a crown with six cogs on its head. A blue triangle with white upper contour and yellow inscription "O Bozhe" [Oh, God] written inside it by thin brush with yellow paint in Cyrillic letters. At the top of the composition a big inscription "Obratnoe nebo" [The opposite sky] is written in square Cyrillic letters by a thin brush with black paint. It is executed in the mirror reflex. The left-top corner of a paper seems folded foreword and a final letter of the inscription is written over that corner.
