A traditional central medallion composition with four borders that Knauer has punningly filled with warring figures. She comments: "Read from the outer band into the center, the story is as follows. First, one can see an argument taking place across a boundary; in the second band, the parties have taken up arms; in the third, they are engaged in combat which leads to their deaths, depicted in the fourth band. The angel in the center observes the perpetual folly of mortals."
This quilt is pictured on p. 72 of The Art Quilt by Robert Shaw.
