an ancient landscape that will endure again
Does "an ancient landscape that will endure again" in the last line of the context mean "in spite of the wars that come and go the landscape is always there and continues its life"?
In Seawright’s piece, a similarly flattened dry path winds into the distance towards the crest of a hill with only sky beyond. In Fenton’s photo, cannonballs – perhaps placed there by the photographer – litter the path. Seawright replaces (perhaps manually) cannonballs with spent shells. In both photos, the depleted weaponry seems out of place in an ancient landscape that will endure again.
