Description

Siegfried carries King Gunther with him as he takes a leap while Brunhilde raises her hand to admit her defeat and a dragon flying above them opens its mouth and sticks out its tongue.
The caption reads in the original German:

Der Sprung der war ergangen,
Der Stein der war gelegen.

* Translation by Daniel Bussier Shumway, from The Nibelungenlied, Boston, New York, 1909.
