The imagery on the silkscreen panels is a high definition print of a photograph of the 3rd century roman sarcophagus Grande Ludovisi, with subtle adjustments made by the desk's designers: some of the faces of the battle's victors and the defeated have been reversed, in a commentary on the nature of fortune.
