Description

A giant stands with three other men, greeting a procession of grotesque bird-like creatures as in the background more familiar birds are perched on rocks.
The caption reads in the original French: Mieux serait, dist frère jean, boire et bancqueter. Panurge restait en contemplation véhémente.
