A man wearing a burnous-like cloak hangs from a cornice by the tip of his fingers while holding an unconscious woman in his other arm. This is an illustration to Le marchand du Caire (The merchant of Cairo) by Henri Martin.
The caption reads in the original French:
Il glissa le long de la muraille avec sa captive sans mouvement.
