The Fisherman, with his monstrous face and shaggy hair, holds Pinocchio by the legs above a frying pan in which two fish are cooking as he is distracted by a large dog.
The caption reads in the original Italian:
— Passa via! — gli gridò il pescatore.
Caption based on M. A. Murray’s translation from The Story of a Puppet: or The Adventures of Pinocchio. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1892.
