The work depicts twelve minutely different images of the artist's own ear printed onto a cloth which was part of Bourgeois's own wedding trousseau.

She often explores elements of her own anatomy in her work and uses the ear as a symbol of listening. Each ear has a punched out hole, individually sewn like a buttonhole.
