'A hint to ladies to take care of their heads'. Coloured mezzotint. The interior of the Rotunda, Pantheon. A woman stands centrally with a huge hairstyle decorated with feathers. It touches the candles in the chandelier above and catches fire. A maid attempts to put the flames out with an extinguisher. The print satirises the fashion for extravagant hairdressing.
