The sign of the aquarius is depicted as a naked man who empties a jug of water. The peacock and lion are attributes of Juno, the goddess of protection of January. This peacock and the harp above it are derived from the Le Douze Mois Grotesques carpet series designed by Claude III Audran (1658-1734) around 1709, which was printed by Jean Audran (1667-1756). Both motifs appear on the print in January with the first two months. The mirrored winged man figures may go back to similar female figures in the loggia of Rafael (1483-1520), which Maderna may have known from, among others, the prints of Giovanni Volpato (1735-1803) and Giovanni Ottaviani (ca. 1735-1808) in Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano (1776-1777, see vol. 1, no.
