On his head are pamphlets with writhing serpents; in one hand he holds du Barry’s head and in the other a scale loaded with coins, representing money the French government paid him to destroy all copies of his Mémoires secrets d’une femme publique, another attack on du Barry. Some events refuse to wither and die in our collective memories. The French Revolution is one of them.
