  old regime not long to endure.jpg - "This will not long endure." ["Ça ne durera pas toujours"] A satirical engraving conveying the imminent overturning of the social injustices associated with the privileged orders of the Church and the Nobility, the First and Second Estates. The Third Estate represented by a peasant carries the fiscal and other burdens that the privileged estates benefit from. The noble's elevated position represents his place at the top of a hierarchy; the hunting dog (symbol of the nobility) and the monkey (symbol of the clergy) harass the Third Estate. The impending overthrow of the "Old Regime" is signaled in the phyrgean cap worn by the peasant, an classical symbol of slave revolt that was adopted by the supporters of the Revolution.
