    100939 | AUSTRIA. Medusa uniface bronze Plaque. Issued 1914. World War I series (69x54mm, 113.37 g). By S. Siess in Wien.


    Facing head of Medusa, her hair coiling with serpents; two swords crossed in saltire, lowering over the back of her neck / Blank. Edge: Plain.


    The Art of Devastation –; Jones, Dance of Death, –. Choice Mint State. Warm brown surfaces, with some light iridescence and a charming matte nature. A moving and unusual piece of wartime art at its early stages.


    After the outbreak of the war, it started to become apparent that this was going to be a much more all-encompassing than any previous conflict. This interesting plaque captures the ugly head of militarized conflict as it is attempting to be severed and ultimately ended. Nevertheless, the ravages continued for four long years.
