An emaciated female figure with hands like claws holds a torch and sticks her tongue out while clutching a bunch of papers to her bosom. Opposite her, an angel smiles blandly while between the two, a crowd of tiny, half human creatures moves in line away from the viewer.
The caption reads in the French version:
Elle est entourée de notaires, de procureurs et d’avocats.
