Verbal Description: This is an intricate, white cut-paper design on a black background. The line of symmetry runs horizontally across the artwork. At the center of the design are two mirrored heart symbols. Surrounding these hearts is a crown of curly-q lines, creating a frame of teardrop shapes. Nearly every teardrop contains a smaller heart and a silhouette of a bird calling out with an open beak. On the very outside parameter are small rectangles, almost like the tabs of a paper doll.
