Description:
The Russian Bear eyes a house of cards. Each card is labeled a different country, "England, France, Germany, Japan, U.S., Austria, China, Italy, [and] Turkey", and the king on each card bears some facial characteristics of the ruler of the country, including Uncle Sam. A dove of "Peace" has landed on top of the cards, alarming the bear. The bear's right paw and claws are touching the "Japan" card.
