Wonderful engravings are sharp and crisp depicting a Babylonian sphinx and the Tetramorph

 A Tetramorph is a symbolic arrangement of four differing elements, or the combination of four disparate elements in one unit. The term is derived from the Greek tetra, meaning four, and morph, shape

In art the Tetramorph is the union of the symbols of the Four Evangelists, the four living Creatures derived from the Book of Ezekiel, into a single figure or, more commonly, a group of four figures. Each of the four Evangelists is usually shown with wings: St Matthew the man, St Mark the lion, St Luke the ox, and John the eagle. In Christian art and iconography, Evangelist portraits are often accompanied by Tetramorphs, or the symbols alone used to represent them. Evangelist portraits that depict them in their human forms are often accompanied by their symbolic creatures

The word comes from the Greek for "four forms" or "shapes".The Tetramorphs were especially common in Early Medieval art, above all in illuminated Gospel books, but remain common in religious art to the present day
