Notes:

On a styilized stage a woman sits on a tightrope with a three-legged table holding two lit candles and other items; she is holding two cups and perhaps will juggle. She wears a feather i her cap and is smiling. Beneath her a man, perhaps a dwarf, holds a large hat is if to catch something dropped, and there is also a wooden chair on the stage. The man wears striped pantaloons or baggy trousers and has a spiked ruff or circus collar.

This woodcut might perhaps have been used on an advertisement for a circus performance.
