The image is a black and white pencil drawing that presents a striking juxtaposition of life and death. It depicts a human figure with one half of the face shown as a living person and the other half as a skeletal skull. The living side of the face appears youthful, with a clear and alert eye, a smooth complexion, and an expression that seems calm and contemplative.
The skull side shows the hollow eye socket, nasal cavity, and teeth typical of a human skull, with detailed shading that gives it a realistic look. The figure is framed by what looks like a draped cloth or shroud, which adds to the macabre and dramatic effect of the image.
The hands of the figure are also visible and are skeletal, each bony finger delicately holding the cloth around the face. The contrast between life and death is further emphasized by the way the hands and face are entwined within the fabric, blurring the lines between the two states. The overall theme may suggest mortality, the duality of existence, or the transition from life to death. The drawing is detailed, with careful attention to shading and texture, giving it a somber and reflective quality.
