A marvelous character of Miró’s imagination appears dramatically before our eyes. Ferocious and fearsome, the creature is wide mouthed, showing its sharp teeth and sharp claws. Its eye is given a vibrant shade of red, easily the central feature of the image. The white coloration of the character’s head against a black background contrasts wonderfully to make the image ever more memorable.
