A rectangular relief of similar dimensions and a comparable landscape background with Cephalus and Procris signed and dated by Georg Schweigger is in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg (inv. no. 1928.114). Solnhofen stone was mined in Franconia and became a favoured material of sculptors in Augsburg and Nuremberg during the 16th and 17th centuries because of its attractive creamy colour and relative softness to carve. Sculptors who frequently used the material include Hans Daucher, Loy Hering, Georg Schweigger and Peter Flotner, who all chiefly used the material for small scale sculpture and reliefs.
