Summary

Print shows the deputies from Paris to the National Assembly aboard a large, ornate carriage being drawn by a bull, lion, sheep, and a snake; ahead of them, leading the procession, are three female figures, one representing France who is accompanied by Peace and Abundance. Fame flies overhead and Envy is crushed beneath the rear wheels of the carriage. On a platform above the wheels is a fasces. Includes a numbered key below the image identifying, by name, each figure, though the figures themselves are not numbered.
