Satyrische Europa Karte Weltkrieg 1914
{Satirical Map of Europe in the World War 1914}
(by E Zimmerman; Hamburg, W. Nölting [pub.], 1914)

Work shows a map of Europe at the outbreak of the first World War with each country depicted as a human figure representative of the particular state of affairs or attitudes of the country, for instance, Germany is depicted as a soldier fighting with both Russia and France, while eyeing England.

The Russian bear sprays insect repellent on the Russians and holds out his empty wallet while roaring “hunger.” Finland, chained to Russia, tries to cut itself free. The Russian is under fire from Austria and Germany. His (chamber)pot is full of victories. His uniform shows a tear in East Prussia and Lithuania.

The Austrian duly scratches the Serbs.
Romania is at the ready.
Bulgaria is still wounded from the Balkan War.
The Turk awakes, he looks at his harem woman.
Norway and Sweden are neutral, Denmark supplies butter.

Italy has both feet in one boot and remains neutral.
The German pushes Belgium out of the way with the elbow and is at Franzi’s head.
Bordeaux becomes an asylum for the homeless.
The victories of the English and French are false, like the snakes that proclaim them. The Englishman will also soon know what 42ers are, etc. etc.

My name is Nick, I live in London, United Kingdom. I am fascinated with internet culture and the media that is generated by it. I adore sci-fi and science. I have been a hobbyist artist for some time, but finally decided to see if I can do something a bit more productive. I hope you enjoy my work.
