Virginia Indians seated around a fire
Bernard Picart's illustrated survey of religious practices around the world borrowed from the published de Bry engravings. The images were enlarged and some flipped left to right, but otherwise little was altered. This print is after de Bry's plate 17, in America, Part 1 (1590). The visual elements are the same, but the composition has been reversed. Picart has rendered details differently (such as flames, smoke, sky, and ground), and he has converted de Bry's overhead illumination to side lighting.
