Depicts a figure of most expressive significance, turns her gaze towards the sunrise, a child at her feet builds with stones from the ruins, and a corpse is carried to the field of the dead where little crosses grow. This image is from the set of 66 lithographs, 'The Great War: Britain's efforts and ideals'.
