"At the top it presents the two sides confrontation. On one side the right contending leaded by Zeus mutating to Pegás are represented as winners, while the left characters that represent the Walhalla of the German mythology, the same as the Greek Olympus, show the suffering and the defeat.

At the bottom of the composition, artillery cannons shoot against a stepped building that represents the monument dedicated to the Leipzig Battle of Nations. Monument built on the year 1913 to commemorate Napoleon defeat on 1813, in front of that moment world powers that the Wise Man showed us at the beginning of the story."
