From the Paper:

"This painting uses spheres heavily (hence the name) and has a good use of line. The face is still visible through the many intersecting lines that form their own sphere as they circle and branch away from the center. The value of most of the colors used is medium, with dark contrast used in the woman's hair. The borders of the design are also of a medium value with the exception of the upper left which is a darker blue than the rest."
