A man leans back on a sloping ground as a creature with tentacles comes out of a large cylinder
A big greyish rounded bulk, the size, perhaps, of a bear, was rising slowly and painfully out of the cylinder. As it bulged up and caught the light, it glistened like wet leather. Two large dark-coloured eyes were regarding me steadfastly.

Description

A man leans back on a sloping ground as a menacing creature with tentacles comes out of a large cylinder whose top is half undone.
The caption reads in the Belgian edition:

Une grosse masse grisâtre et ronde, de la grosseur à peu près d’un ours, s’élevait lentement et péniblement hors du cylindre. Au moment où elle parut en pleine lumière, elle eut des reflets de cuir mouillé. Deux grands yeux sombres me regardaient fixement.
