This is an illustration from the book 'Tierisch Unter Strom by Peter Gut.  It is a book where, from what I understand, animals test machines.  A cat rides fan blades like a carouse, and as in the postcard above, zebras test the catapult power of a toaster.  It is the animals way of braking the same old routine.

Gotta love those zebras. The zebra was my high school mascot. Nice to see them appear in art too.
