The "Last Battle", it's the final battle between good and evil. On the one side you see the agonized face of man as he's being destroyed and on the other side you see the face of... it speaks for itself. it could be a dehumanized person or robot with a touch of the military and the evil is represented by the snake, or serpent which is devouring them both, when evil gets so far along in any society its self-destructive, it feeds on itself. And it is clear that evil is winning.
