The first state is before the strong third hatching line in the background.

Beham was one of the Northern Renaissance Little Masters, so called because of their eminence in producingsmall-scale engravings such as Ornament with Armor and Two Genii.Beham was born in Nuremberg in 1500, and may have trained under Durer, though his training is no more certain than that of his younger brother Barthel. He made his first engraving in 1518, and later became known for producing woodcuts, as well as engravings.

This is one of the tiny prints Beham which no doubt served as the basis for decorationof objects during the Northern Renaissance, objects such as clocks, locks, cups, ceramics, stained glass windows, boxes, cabinets, swords, etc.
