Formerly attributed to Vasari, as in the old inscription, and described as a ceiling design. But the design, though not by the hand of Perino, bears some resemblance to two designs for metal dishes ascribed to him in the British Museum (1862-7-12-191) and the Hamburg Kunsthalle (21088). Both drawings are illustrated in A. Neumeyer, 'Einige italienische Handzeichnungen in Hamburg' in Zeitschrift fur bildende Kunst, 62, 1928-29, p. 46. On the British Museum drawing see also Pouncey and Gere, no. 167. Another drawing of a similar type, attributed to Marco Marchetti, but probably also a copy after Perino, is at Turin (Bertini, no. 241).
