The wooden puppet Pinocchio is seen from the side addressing the Blue-Haired Fairy who stands upright, looking down at him with her arms akimbo.
The caption reads in the original Italian:
Dimmi, mammina: dunque non è vero che tu sia morta?
Caption based on M. A. Murray’s translation from The Story of a Puppet: or The Adventures of Pinocchio. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1892.
