Peace

Drawing

Description

English

This satirical drawing shows peace as an angel, sitting between two buildings in which soldiers from different countries are fighting. The angel sits neglected and abandoned, suggesting no one cared about peace during World War One, but that fighting for supremacy was their only concern.
