Description
Inscriptions/Signature

In the center foreground are two men standing on white clouds. The man on the facing left is identified as Napoleon. He wears a long blue trench coat with black knee high boots, a red, green and white waistcoat with blue details and white pants. With his proper right hand he points to a red throne on the facing left side. To Napoleon's proper left there is a soldier wearing a blue soldier's uniform. In the background are five soldiers in uniform holding guns with bayonets. Outside of that image there is a thick green border around the outside.
