An oil on canvas painting by Vincent Desiderio that depicts a rocky seaside landscape. The cliff in the foreground is made of rocks of various shapes and sizes and is rendered in brown and beige. A solider kneels between the cliff rocks in the midground of the same color. The figure and cliff are set against a foreboding sky with a thick swirl of dark smoke cutting across it.
