Self-portrait (white, short untidy dirty-blonde hair) standing, naked, mostly angled away from the viewer. My torso has been mostly replaced by a gilded bird cage that blends into my flesh, its door hanging ajar. My empty hands are raised. Feathers shower down as if a bird has flown from them. Plain white background except for a thin black line that suggests grassy ground. A black cat licks her paw near my feet. Dead birds and their feathers lay scattered about on the ground.
