Plaque: Hannibal’s elephant & Manneken-Pis

We wish we could explain this to you but we can’t. There are some additional clues in the cartoon which the photograph might not show clearly: The character labelled 16 is holding a banner on which is written: "LA MINE SOURIANTE - Salon des Humoristes". The little boy, labelled as "KETJE", has tied a lit firework to the elephant’s tail. The elephant is joining in the Manneken-Pis’ activities, using its trunk.
