There has to be a story behind this print. We see a man with a lion’s head hawking Pommade de Lion, while a very long line of people wait to get the product. In the foreground we see bald people rubbing it on their heads, and people with a very exaggerated hair who have already used it. A tethered balloon is labeled "no. 537. Envoi de Pommade aux Habitants de la Lune."
