Description

Two soldiers covered in metal armor face each other. One is sitting on the ground, his legs stretched out to one side. A sword is in his right hand. He looks up at the other man. The standing soldier is gesturing with his left hand and holds a sword away from his body with his right hand. Behind them, a battle rages.
