Monochromatic image of figures in a landscape. There are five men lying face down on the ground in a diagonal from lower left to center right. They are holding rifles and in a trench. Some of them have backpacks on. There is a man kneeling in the bottom left quadrant and holding binoculars to his eyes. There are objects in the air above them. The objects include cauldrons and a pot of flowers. The horizon line is about on third from the top.
