Product details The Carcase and the Eagles

The Carcase and the Eagles

Joseph Swain

'The Carcase and the Eagles', 1871.The dead body of France lies outstretched, one hand holding down the wounded Eagle of Communism. All around, the other eagles circle in search of filling the power vacuum. They represent the Royal House of Bourbon, Imperialism, Republicanism and Monarchy. France had in the past been ruled by all of these eagles, but following her unsuccessful war against Prussia, and the subsequent short anarchy of Communism, she now had no real ruler. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 17, 1871.
