Vue du Temple de Vesta

Print depicting the city of Paestum in Rome from the inside of a temple. The etching is in color, and the image was probably colored after the printing process was complete. The perspective is from the ground level, as if the viewer was standing inside the structure and looking towards the outside.

Bronze temple bell with traces of polychrome, text, and lowermost handle in shape of a pair of addorsed lions. A decorated post threads through the space created by the back-to-back lions, on which an additional handle decorated with addorsed dragons is thread. The open space created between the dragons' connecting tails is where part of a frame would pass through, suspending the bell above the ground. This type of bell does not have a metal clapper, and is rung by striking with a wooden stick.
