Additional Information

Engraved from a drawing executed by the prominent Northern Renaissance painter Pieter Bruegel, the image links greed and obsessive materialism to war. In doing so, the Flemish artist may have been alluding to the thriving commercial culture in the city of Antwerp, where Bruegel resided.
