A black and white silkscreen lettering of a dove with its right wing outstretched, neck turned. The bird's beak is a brilliant shade of orange. There is a poem titled, "I Think Continually of Those Who Were Truly Great." below the dove, and names of various people above the dove. The poem was written by Stephen Spender.

A battle scene with a number of figures painted on different planes. Horses, elephants, swords, shields, guns, and an injured man populate the image. The scene is intense--a figure is shown as stepping on the body of the maimed fighter in the bottom-center of the image. The stances and gestures overall register movement and action.
