Part of Dürer

Well well, it’s not getting any better. This is based on a section of Albrecht Dürer’s 1504 engraving “Adam & Eva”. Dürer used copper, I guess mostly because he didn’t want to wait the 350 years until Linoleum was invented. The impatient old git. It’s Adam’s Foot stepping on the mouse tail. The original also has a cat further to the right which is a cute scene but I’m not Dürer, and this was hard enough as is. Also I still can’t print properly. Time for easier source material next time. Or copper, whatever’s cheaper.
