Bacchus rides the chariot, but he looks more hung over than triumphant. His gesture suggests that he may not appreciate the music made by the cymbal-playing satyr. Apart from the three prints that bear his monogram, almost nothing is known of the skilled engraver who depicted this miniature parade.
