Description: Fine impression on laid paper with large margins; some dust and stains and two small holes in the margins. The set of six was meant as designs for tapestries or screens to serve as door curtains. Each contains an image of a deity on a complex altar surrounded by attributes and ornamental elements. Although Gillot etched six plates (and duplicates of several), all were left incomplete. Five of them were finished by C. N. Cochin the Younger who also made a copy (in reverse) of the sixth and the set was issued in that form by Huquier in Paris.
