This print was made by hand using the 16th century etching process: A metal plate was coated in a waxy compound, and the design lightly scratched through onto the metal. The plate was then immersed in a corrosive solution to "burn" the design deep into the metal. This created the printing plate which is then inked by hand and placed next to a sheet of damp paper. The paper and plate are then run between the rollers of an etching press, which exerts massive pressure to force the paper against the plate, transferring the ink onto the paper. This gives a detailed image with a highly characteristic appearance. The impression of the plate can clearly be seen, pushed deep into the paper.
