Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
The Roman god "Mars" is shown bound to rocks, imprisoned with shackles and clamps labeled "Russo-German Commercial Treaty," fastened with spikes driven by Nicholas II of Russia and William II of Germany using large sledgehammers labeled "Ratification." In the background, a female figure labeled "Peace" reclines in a hammock that hangs between the standards of each nation. Caption: Peace in Europe is safe for ten years more, anyhow!
