Strong colors of reds, blues, and yellows in circles, splotches, and rectangles meet our gaze in this fascinating look into the imagination of Miró. As strong black outlines denote a rather interesting creature that's not quite human or animal, a jovial and carefree mood comes over us as we take in the creature's pleasure of its equally strange surroundings.
