The mural began with a painting of an open mouth with a star over the tongue. That was followed by a megaphone with a ban the bomb symbol on it and it was filled with empty space.

The megaphone was followed by a butterfly, and then the legs of a woman wearing high heels rising upside-down from a clump of grass.

The number 21 was partly truncated by a blue background and one of the woman's legs.

An echoing heart floated above and to the right and above a bulldog's face. The dog leaked a rainbow.
