A digital collage with a large drawing of an umbrella overlaid with images of large overlapping hands. Below it, two hands (one black, one pink) reach up and away from a stylized road leading to a distant house partially overlaid with a pixelated, cloudy stain of red colour. In the background is an image of a forest of white tree trunks and a faint yellow sun.
