Notes:

Ornaments like this were very popular in 17th and 18th century France; they are getting a resurgene in popularity on the Web. This one shows a ring of five circles, with a central ring too; the shadows make them look like spheres. The texture of the paper on which it was printed gives it an almost dream-like sketched quality.
