"Three men are on the sea-shore, close to a small boat (right) with a tattered sail. One, wearing a cocked hat and military gaiters, has a basket slung round his neck containing bundles of matches for sale. He stands looking to the left, the others are behind: one (left) holds a damaged anchor on an anvil, trying to straighten it with a hammer. The other (right) sits on a three-legged stool repairing a ragged sail. The explanation ends ironically, 'Bientot les Bataves regneront sur les mers, et feront la loi à la glorieuse Albion!' Text, 'Ezekiel', xxvii. 36."--British Museum online catalogue.
