From afar this is an illustration of the Death’s-Head Hawkmoth, but upon closer inspection, it reveals scenes of war. A gas mask replaces the skull marking and inner wings depict scenes of desolation after the start of a nuclear winter. The left outer wing shows a mushroom cloud scattering bones throughout. The right-wing shows a rearing horse in a chemical explosion. Underneath the smoke cloud, a city stands in ruins.
