Images – Germany at War, 1914-1918: Mobilization of the Home Fron

The picture depicts a sort of blessing from God and also incorporating a sense of patriotism and honor by having the medal being present as to say sacrifice for your country and you could earn this great honor.  A similar picture I have seen was was a picture for the Irish saying 1 Irish CB defeat 10 Germans with a medal of valor by a picture of an Irish soldier. These are similar because they depict medals from their country and the value of it to go to war for your country and earn these medals.
