A decorative map of the Holy Land divided into the Twelve Tribes, engraved by Seutter's son-in-law, Tobias Conrad Lotter.

Around the inset map of the 40 Years in the Desert is a female figure paying homage to an allegorical figure of Roman Authority, a mantle taken by Maria Theresa as Holy Roman Empress. LAOR: 721.
