Les Propos de Thomas Vireloque: His Majesty the King of beasts

Loose black lines form two men, possibly vagrants, in baggy, layered clothing. At left, one with tiny round glasses on his forehead and straggly hair leans on a fence. The other, with a round nose and full cheeks, snoozes on the ground at right.
