Notes:

This cartouche, or border, or frame, was drawn and then engraved by the French designer Jacques I Androuet du Cerceau, or Ducerceau, in or around 1560. The cherubs look like nine or ten year old boys to me, but are supposed to be infants. There are also some flowers alopng the top, and a harpy at either lower corner. There is a skull, possibly of an ox, at upper middle, surrounded by the artist’s signature circular wreath of flowers, and there are bunches of fruit and scrollwork around the edges.
