Summary

Napoleon is pushed and dragged by two winged devils into the flames of Hell, while a fantastic serpent encircles his body and darts fangs towards his face. They are surrounded by clouds and a chain of littel dancing hobgoblins. Winged monstrosities hover over him, spitting flame, or menace him with gapinng jaws and glaring eyeballs. Napoleon is burlesqued and ragged, with a corvine profile, imitated from G. Cruikshank.
