"It does not"

What was the context of this quote because on it's own it seems kinda weird.

"On ne passe pas" can mean "it does not pass". However in the context of the quote it becomes something more akin to "they [the Germans] shall not pass".

it means do not pass, or you will not pass. passe is a form of the word passer meaning to pass, on is is a pluralized word that translates to you or they. ne pas means does not/ will not/ shall not.

"On ne passe pas!" => Ligne Maginot.
"Verdun! On ne passe pas!" is a french military song after the battle of verdun.

truly great artwork except the head is a bit... wrongly scaled. I hope your artist will fix it because it kinda kills the awesome scenery.

Yeah I know I messed up on the face-head part but a lot of it is due to the fact that he is wearing a scarf around his neck, added on top of which the folds of his uniform seem to raise his shoulder level above that which it really is. :P

The closest literal translation would be "we don't pass" in the same way you may tell a child "we don't do that" where "we" is not used to denote "you and I" but is used as a generalization to indicate that the act is forbidden.

Basically it means "nobody passes through" or simply "no passing".

Famously said during the Battle of Verdun in 1916. This concept art/poster is a bit of a treat for all you who just can't resist the French World War I spirit of warfare.
