Voted "poster of the week" by Expresso Beans subscribers for April 1st, 2020, Laurent Durieux's concept and ideas behind the composition are best explained by the artist himself: "The art captures the room of the girl found dead who was on the autopsy table at the coroner’s office with her back incised. Here I make an ellipse between two scenes that follow each other in the final part of the film, where the Agent Starling understands by seeing the different elements observed in this piece (polaroids, wallpaper with butterflies, sewing machine, dressmaker's dummy, and especially the dress in the closet (which has the same two large diamond-shaped strips). She understands that this is a dressmaker who makes clothes out of human skins and then we find her at Buffalo's house in the final scene, which is why we see Agent Starling approaching Buffalo's house across the street." This has been hand-numbered #8 from a print run of 350 by Durieux.
