Fine original antique engraving, printed on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
Lovely engraved image depicting this key scene of classical Greek mythology.
In Good+ or better condition, small dampstain in top right corner which just touches a bit into the printed area as seen [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting image that would look great framed.
