A satire on Napoleon. A corpulent King George sits at his dining table before a large dinner plate with utensils decorated with his crest in gold. From a hollow upright bone pops an image of the slight Napoleon in full uniform with his arms posed to box. Above King George’s head are etched the lines: “There you little insignificant pigmy, I’ve bone’d you.”
