Artwork is comprised of two block mounted images shown one above the other, however the top image is set to the side so that the giraffe necks line up with the figures below. The top image is a collage showing two giraffe necks topped with a pink flower. In the centre of each flower is the head of a tiger or leopard. The background is a floral garden. The bottom image is of two standing figures showing from their necks to their knees. The left figure is wearing a black outfit with a studded corset and white lacey/crocheted gloves. The right figure is a man wearing black hotpants, black tights, a leopard print top with a lace collar with layers of frills and a large brooch at the neck. They also have shoulder length hair styled into two large ringlets.
