Description

A giant in sixteenth-century costume is destroying a castle with his staff as an army of tiny soldiers charges to try to stop him and cannons fire from towers rising no higher than his hat.

The caption reads in the original French: Alors, choqua de son grand arbre contre le château, et à grands coups abattit et tours et forteresses et ruina tout par terre.
