An interpretation of a para-cyclist. The four phases of the moon are spread across the top of the drawing. Under the full moon are the head and feet of the cyclist with a red teapot leading the way, between the waxing and waning moons are the wings and wheels of the cyclist, and under the crescent moon are two more feet and a clock.
