Louis XVIII caricatured as an elephant, seen from behind. His broad bowed shoulders are the animal's hind-quarters, with an arc of bald head between side-pieces of powdered hair which serve as elephant's ears. A very narrow pointed coat-tail hangs between the pillarlike legs of the gouty king. Across the back is a ribbon from which dangles a fleur-de-lis.
