An illustration featuring a whimsical and cartoonish character that resembles a cross between an animal and a mask. The character has a pale face, with a wide, toothy smile, small nose, and two large, round eyes, one slightly smaller than the other, giving it a quirky asymmetrical appearance. The face is framed with what looks like soft pink ears or horns. The words "THE GILDED CAGE" curve around the top and bottom of the character in bold, playful lettering, with a soft yellow and blue color palette.
