Gift of John Gutmann

An army marches through the street of a village by the sea as war and fire rages in the distance. A giant god of war lies in the sky over the burning village.

A vision of war. A brooding giant and savage figure in helmet, armor, and sword overlooks a devastated city, bridge and river. As an army approaches citizens cower in fear, horses rear among the suffering fleeing soldiers.
