"The Mice are burying the Cat". An 18th-century Russian lubok print with a very popular plot, that of the mice burying the cat. It has been commonly thought this plot is a caricature of Peter the Great's burial, authored by the opponents of his innovations. (Indeed, the caption above the Cat says, "The Cat of Kazan, the Mind of Astrakhan, the Wisdom of Siberia" -- which itself is a parody of the title of Russian Czars). However, it has been claimed by modern researchers that this is simply a representation of "turning the world upside down".
