In this work of art, chaos and disordered is depicted using a detailed approach. Dead and mangled bodies lying on the ground, shrapnel flying about, and other miscellaneous destroyed items can be found upon examining this piece. Amongst the chaos is a cloud of smoke that sweeps through the painting, suggesting that the Chew House was under heavy fire.
