By: Theodor de Bry

Date: 1599 (circa) Amsterdam

This antique print by de Bry depicts a procession in Bali led by its king in an elaborate four-wheeled cart resembling a chariot which is pulled by oxen draped in expensive textiles. Armed guards escort him and he is protected from the sun by a large umbrella.

This interesting copperplate engraved print by Theodor deBry was composed by him according to stories and illustrations of European expeditions and explorations that were being made at the end of the sixteenth century.

Theodor de Bry started his professional career as an engraver, during the three years he lived in London. De Bry became acquainted with the geographer Richard Hakluyt, whose stories of expeditions to exotic foreign lands invoked a desire in de Bry to make the discoveries known to a wider reading public. Thus most of his books were based on first-hand accounts by the explorers themselves.

Condition: This print is in B+ condition with some light foxing, and a stain confined to the margins. Separations on the lower border have been repaired with archival material on the verso
