Here we see Marianne, the personification of the French state, pondering the debts and expenses set before her. Draped in the national flag and adorned with the hat she's carried since the revolution, Marianne speaks to the patriot within all frenchmen. She and the rooster, another symbol of the state, demand the public's aid and support.
