    Shows Britannia and a number of European leaders (including Otto E L von Bismarck (Count of Bismarck-Schönhausen) and Emperor Napoleon III of France) standing on top of the Great Pyramid of Giza and contemplating the scene. The allegorical figure of France turns to Britannia and remarks 'See what it unites!', but the sceptical Britannia replies, 'Think what it may divide!'.
