The key structure on the left visible in this image is visible in the same location with the same edges in the two other components of this work. At first, the work is relatively calm, with only some waves emanating from the top-right corner, and a lone figure towards the center doing his best against them. In Warden Fighting the work develops cracks all over, and moves to an electric, high-contrast color scheme. One figure, a complicated an intricate collection of cracks in that top-right corner, is clearly intruding, and the highlights and cyan-white coloration in the bottom-left corner indicate that it is the bulwark defending against this invader. But in Warden Succumbs, that fighting figure has lost its light, and the invader has expanded, turning a deep red while the remainder of the work grows dimmer.
