This is a semi-abstract watercolor mixed-media piece by MF Camilleri, dated 1964. Against a dark, grey background reminiscent of outer space from within a space shuttle, a long blend of green and yellow watercolor hues encircles the rim of the porthole. The artist's use of a collage on top of this serpentine shape introduces an element of spatial peculiarity to the composition, akin to fragments of life on Earth. With an entrancing eye, a saintly figure representing a religious symbol on the right, and a red road light in the top left corner, the overall impression of the artwork remains enigmatic, inviting a myriad of potential interpretations from the viewer.

One of these interpretations could be to see the upper part of the composition as the head of a bird and its beak, possibly reinforcing the notion of a creature voyaging through space, gazing upon the boundless universe. Perhaps this alien bird serves as a personification of the artist's desire to keep just a few souvenirs from Earth and embrace the tranquility of dwelling among the stars.

Unfortunately, no information could be found on the artist, who may have preferred the haven of anonymity to the bustle of fame.
