Description

A performing artist with leonine hair and mustache stands among large planets while happily juggling smaller ones and their satellites, not heeding the medal (the Legion of Honor) falling out like a shooting star, greedily awaited by a tiny man standing on the earthly globe.

The caption reads in the original French: Ces boules n’├ętaient rien moins [sic] que des univers.
