Lindsay was a brilliant illustrator and he let his imagination loose in a series of vivid anti-German posters. Here, the 'Hun' is not even human: a brutal gorilla-like monster reaching out to crush the entire world. Lindsay makes the point that although the spilling of blood begins in distant Europe, it is steadily dripping towards Australia.
Norman Lindsay, lithograph, c.1915
