Amid hunters and fishermen, Diana stands on a pedestal with bow and arrow as the ruler of shipping and fishing. In the background is a view of the coast with several ships. In the sky, we see the symbol of the constellation lobster. The print is part of a series of seven representations called the planetary gods.
