The left- and -right- sections each comprise two lights: the left lights depict War via heroic figures of the Middle Ages, Knights, Crusaders and Ancient Britons above the words "War" and "Devastation"; the right lights depict Peace via allegorical figures of music, love, prosperity and cord, together with depictions of nature and life, above the words "Peace" and "Plenty".
