Description:
Oil on canvas painting depicting an image of a world globe next to an expired hourglass; the globe has been stabbed by knife and sword, both dripping blood; on the globe rests Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" underneath a human skull; in the starry sky beyond, a crescent moon glows with the shadow of a hammer and sickle above a graveyard of many crosses in the distance.
