Vertical panel with a pendant design at center, a scene containing the figure of Mars, wearing a helmet and holding a spear, under a niche at center and surrounded by a flower-arabesque pattern. The ornament hangs from a ribbon and has three pearls descending from the bottom and left and right sides. At bottom left and right, circular ornaments that may have been designs for earrings or buttons. From a set of ten plates with pendant designs, five of which show deities in niches. Four designs in the series are decorated exclusively with ornate flower-arabesques and are most likely designs for pendant versos. This plate belongs to the first edition, published by Hans I Liefrinck in Antwerp before 1573. Jan Collaert I produced several series of plates with pendant designs, a practice continued by his son, Adriaen Collaert.
