Help for the extended search

You can combine multiple search parameters.

Some of the available search fields allow direct entering of search terms. Right behind these fields, you can find a small checkbox. If you fill in your search term, the search generally runs for any occurrences of the entered string. By enabling the small checkbox ("Exact"), you can execute a search for that exact term.

There are also option menus. You can select search conditions by clicking on their respective entry in the appearing list there.

The third type of fields that neither have an "exact" checkbox nor consist of a list, reacts to your inputs. Once you type in some text, a list of suggested terms appears for you to select from.

Muschelschale, Nürnberg, um 1590 (Landesmuseum Württemberg CC BY-SA)


Opulent ausgestaltete Muschelschale mit Schaft in Form des Meeresgottes Triton, der der aufgewühlten See entsteigt. Er kniet auf einem Fuß, der mit reliefierten Meerwesen und Wellen verziert ist. Die Muschelschale wird durch drei Spangen gehalten, die oben mit Tierköpfen und unten mit Fruchtbüscheln abschließen. In die Muschel ragt ein auf einem Delphin reitender Flußgott.
Die Muschelschale ist Teil eines Schalenpaares. Triton neigt seinem Kopf zur Seite, dort sollte die selbe Schale, getragen von einer weiblichen Sirene, stehen.
