Design is fine. History is mine.

Imagine a time with no computers.
Esaias von Hulsen, Square Blackwork Design in Silhouette Style with Schweifwerk and Grotesque Figures, 1617.

The pattern by goldsmith von Hulsen is a complex compilation of animals, human figures and objects placed in a network of thin strips characterized by many C-Volutes, known as Schweifwerk. His prints are remarkable because he is one of the first to break the Renaissance habit of creating symmetrical designs. Source metmuseum
