Summary

A mock funeral procession for the heavy imperial taxes levied on the Protestants but lost after the Protestant victory at Breitenfeld. The procession begins in the lower right corner and advances across the bottom, up the left side, and along the top where it heads into the mouth of hell. On the right, in the opening of the loop formed by the procession, is a festive outdoor dinner party with dancing and drinking.
The figures in the illustration are numbered; a key, transcribed in verse below the print, provides additional information.
