Her proer right hand is curled around the end of an artillery gun with flowers placed on top of it. Also on top of the barrel is a bird, idenitifed as the Gallic Cock, standing on top of a black bird, identified as the Imperial German Eagle. Below the gun is grass and flowers and at the facing right side it a French flag with the words "QUAND MEME!" on it.
