This original copper-plate engraving from an early 18th Century Bible is a real beauty. It depicts the Prophet Isaiah/ Esaias of the old Testament. It was engraved by the famous German Engraver Engelhardt Nunzer and published in 1701. It shows Isaiah in great detail holding a page in one hand and a saw in the other. He looks up into the sky.

The first verse of the Book of Isaiah states that Isaiah prophesied during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, the kings of Judah. According to the rabbinic literature, Isaiah was a descendant of the royal house of Judah. Some writers assert that Isaiah was a vegetarian, on the basis of passages in the Book of Isaiah that extol nonviolence and reverence for life
