This poster, know as Tree Poster or the Warrior Poster, features Deena Metzger as the Warrior. Metzger poses exuberantly, revealing her tree branch tattoo. The poster is a collaboration by Metzger, photographer Hella Hammid, and graphic designer Sheila de Bretteville.
The poster contains the following text:
"I am no longer afraid of mirrors where I see the sign of the Amazon, the one who shoots arrows. There was a fine line across my chest where a knife entered, but now a branch winds about the scar and travels from arm to heart. Green leaves cover the branch, grapes hang there and a bird appears. What grows in me now is vital and does not cause me harm. I think the bird is singing. I have relinquished some of the scars. I have designed my chest with care given to an illuminated manuscript. I am no longer ashamed to make love. Love is a battle I can win. I have a body of a warrior who does not kill or wound. On the book of my body, I have permanently inscribed a tree."
