This dark blue wool and undyed cotton double cloth coverlet is woven in two panels and seamed at the center. Floral and star motifs typically found in Haring's work decorate the central field. The left and right borders have images of eagles with outspread wings alternating with vases of flowers and pairs of birds in trees. From left to right along each panel of the top and bottom borders, there is a rooster standing on an egg, the inscription cartouche, and an eagle. The Haring trademark of a rose with four leaves on its stem appears in each corner block. There is natural fringe along the bottom edge.
