It has also an enormous jaw with yellow teeth resembling a skeleton of a fish, and a big red camp reminding a seven-cogs crown outlined with light-blue contour. A yellow vertical strip divides its face and body to two parts. A Hebrew word 'Mavet" [Death] is written by crayon with red and blue paint over its body against a background an unpainted paper. The background represents a rectangle of unpainted paper with corve edges surrounded with blue paint in the upper corners of the picture, and with yellow paint in its lower corners.
