War scene (Escena bélica)
This tapestry shows a war scene taking place in front of a large walled city, in reference to one of the conquests of Nebuchadnezzar.

Among the characters in combat we can find two figures who could be the Assyrian king and hisgeneral, because the character on the left, with a shield decorated with a large face, is repeated throughout the series and can be identified as Holofernes. The Book of Judith describes a battle waged by the troops of Nebuchadnezzar against King Arpachshad (Judith 1, 13-15).
