Description

Landscape print of a battle with two figures fighting in the foreground. One of the figures is holding the other by his hair, and holding a sword in his other hand. There is a castle in the background, in the left side of the image, and a large hill in the right side of the image. There are tents outside of the castle and crowds of figures around it.
