Notes:  This charming woodcut displays fine qualities - excellent draughtmanship, a strong sense of theatre and a gentle humour. Rumpf has placed the marching soldiers and priests against the stark, castellated wall of the city.  The spear-carrying soldiers are shouting as the priests blow the trumpets - as described in Joshua Chapter 6.  “On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets.  When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.”

 

Condition:  The woodcut is in excellent condition with a sharp impression and wide margins.
