This print differs in some details from that illustrated in The Illustrated Bartsch. The fold in Christ’s banner, to the left of the staff, just below His hand, is hatched differently; the hatching on the upper part of Christ’s right leg is different; the hand of the soldier to the left of Christ’s legs is different; and the top of the scabbard of the standing soldier with his back to the viewer is different.
