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 Very Good or better condition, small dampstain in bottom right corner outside the printed area which will disappear once matted [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.
