About this work

Description

Allegorical cartoon showing a warrior woman wearing a long green dress, helmet and jewels around her neck and bosom slaying a seven-headed dragon. On every neck of the beast is the name of a disease. The woman is holding a bloodied sword in her right hand and an oversized Valda Pastilles tin lid as a shield. Probably a press advertisment cut from a larger sheet. There is a calendar for July 1911 to June 1912 on the reverse.
