This impressive woodcut depicts God the Father seated on a throne surrounded by the firmament. Cherubs cavort in the heavens above and two devilish creatures holding armorial crests are at bottom. A banner (in Latin) reads, God said Let there Be and all things were made. Latin text on verso.
Fine impression with a couple of very small spots, else very good.
