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.
Text continues: 1. Remove tops and bottoms, 2. take off paper labels, 3. wash thoroughly, 4. flatten firmly.
