This late-19th-century woodcut shows the Russian fairground version of Petrushka. Note his exaggerated facial features and gaudy costume. In this scene, Petrushka bargains with a gypsy for a horse. The horse subsequently throws Petrushka, and in revenge he beats the gypsy to death, starting a whole string of violent conflicts that generally end with Petrushka being dragged off to hell.
