This original copper-plate engraving from a Martin Luther Bible is a real beauty. It depicts an Angel explaining the New Testament to a Woman - most likely a queen since she has a crown next to her feet. There are many with many Cherubs and Putti flying around. It was engraved by the famous German Engraver A. Nunzen and published in circa 1725. It has the title "Das Neue Testament" - meaning the new testament. It used to be the cover page of the new testament section of a Luther Bible.
