In the collection of the Rijksmuseum is an early-modern album of prints from the library of (and likely compiled by) a man named Jean de Poligny about whom nothing else appears to be known. Among the highlights of the album is a pair of beautiful sets engraved by the Flemish artists Adriaen Collaert (1560–1619) modeled on paintings by Maerten de Vos (1532–1603).

Fire, Helios, is seen encircled by flames, a Phoenix rising towards him and in his hand a salamander.

Although the latter is amphibious, it has long been associated with fire in legend, most likely due to its habit of hibernating in logs, which when used as fuel would result in salamanders mysteriously escaping from the flames.
