A mustached Polish soldier dressed in green military uniform drops his unsheathed sabre and struggles under the weight of a massive grizzly bear (Russia) that straddles his back. Fallen on the floor are the soldier’s hat and a staff of liberty inscribed ‘Poland & Liberty’. A satirical treatment of the Polish-Russian War, 1830-1831 or the ‘November Uprising’.
