Object description

image: A scarred battlefield covered with water-filled shell craters and barbed wire. There are a number of explosions of smoke and earth on the horizon where shells have landed.

Label

The battle-scarred landscape remains deserted with great water-filled craters. In the distance, a series of broken trees line the horizon and exploding shells remind us of the proximity of war. This work is a critical response to the meaningless destruction of landscape in war.
