Love's Palace

WAG 304


In the centre, a winged 'Love' sits on a throne. Around are a number of winged boys, one of which has fallen asleep on a step at the foot of the throne. At the base of the steps leading to the throne sit the three 'Fates', two hold a twine of thread between them, the other holds shears. On the left of centre are three girls, two are watching a bubble float in the air and the other is crying. A winged character is trying to comfort her. To the right of centre, a girl is listening to music while another is reading. Behind them are knights on horseback. In the lower foreground, winged boys are playing in the brambles amongst which can be seen a crown and a sword.
