Davis deciphers the intriguing pictorial narratives and complex metaphors of images that are concerned with "masking the blow" of the ruler. "Masking the blow" refers to the ways that the imagesâfrom hunted animals to human antagonistsârepresent, elide, or suppress the depiction of a ruler's violent act of conquering an enemy.

His work will greatly interest art historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and students of the visual arts.
