Self portrait in the medium of acrylic on paper. Riva is situated in the center of the artwork with her back turned to the viewer. She is nude, with a long red ponytail. Her spine curves to the right with the surrounding skin falling in a wave formation. The skeleton of her lower spine, pelvis, hips, and femurs show through semi-transparent skin. Overlaid on Riva’s nude body is a monochromatic blue equine skeleton. The surrounding background is a multi-tonal blue.
