Urn with a garland of flowers

Urn with a garland of flowers

The image of the urn makes use of classical elements, vegetal ornaments, a garland, and architectural elements in stone.

The engraving reinforces the decorative trend in book illustration prevalent at the time. See also the frontispiece of Abraham Munting's Phytographia curiosa, also etched by Monnoyer.
