Folded paper puzzle consisting of four lithographed portraits of Gortschakoff, Andrassy, Sadyk Pacha and Bismarck. By doubling up the sheet of paper two portraits are made out of the four- Sadyk Pasha and Bismarck. Another fold of the paper and the four statesmen's portraits make up a likeness of Earl Beaconsfield. Above that likeness are the words "This is the head!"
