Save your cans : help pass the ammunition : prepare your tin cans for war ....

Description:

An woman's arm holding a tomato can appears on the bottom right side of the poster. The can image is repeated and runs into the painting. As the cans get smaller, they change into a chain of bullets that a soldier is feeding into his gun. In the background are a large red explosion and an airplane falling from the sky.
