Deux fleuves en barelief
Greeks and Romans depicted their rivers as reclining bearded men crowned with reeds.

This beautiful antique print of a statue was made in 1723 by Simon Thomassin in Paris.
It is from his work 'Recuel des Statue, Groupes, Fontaines, Termes, Vases et Autres Mangifique Ornamens du Chateau et Parc de Versailles' about the magnificent statues and fountains at the Palace of Versaille. King Louis XIV commissioned the work. Thomassin held the title Graveur du Roy (Engraver of the King).

This antique print was made by engraving on a copper printing plate and printing on handmade chain-linked paper.It is in excellent condition considering it was made nearly 300 years ago.
