Anastasie

from Sébastien Faure, The Anarchist Encyclopedia, 1934.

Anastasie: Nickname given to censorship, which caricaturists usually draw as an old hag with a long nose on which glasses are perched. In her hand are huge scissors that she uses to cut out without mercy whatever is not acceptable to the rules and regulations. Symbol of ridicule and decrepitude.
