An enormous weathercock, with a huge dice for the base, stands mounted on top of a roof of a large building. Above its four arms with compass points is a dice box and another dice on top of it. From this dice protrude the heads of Charles Fox on the left and Lord North on the right. To the spike above them attached is a card with the knave of hearts. Fox's head, with a long barbed arrow coming out of his mouth, looks towards 'E' commenting on the failure of the East India bill. North's face is oriented toward 'N.' A huge fox's brush comes out of his mouth instead of the boreal blow
