An image of a woman, apparently bound, and reduced to a skeleton inside her clothes. The mural is narrow because it was painted on a narrow concrete pillar that formed part of the entrance to Alioto's Garage on Folsom Street.

The artist's signature was at the base of the mural. It indicated that the mural was by, "A.Lynn," or Amanda Lynn. The word, "Whaio" was sketched in pink below the signature. It was either the title of the mural, or was added later as a bit of graffiti. We chose to interpret it as the title. There was no indication of when (in what year) the mural was painted.

The hair was styled up high in a formal manner. Many tiny pink bows held the hair in place. One long curl fell down behind the skeletal neck of the woman. Notice a squirt of red spray paint decorated the metal to the right of the mural.
