Description: Fine, delicate impression on laid paper with margins of 5 mm. outside the platemark all around. De Gheyn's images are not your typical set of Dutch/Flemish landscapes, as they are totally imagined and include mythological or esoteric elements. The scene here is a rocky one, near a shore, with a cave and a natural arch, and peopled by bearded men with high hats and one or two females.
