About this work

Description

The courtyard contains scenes of debate over astronomical maps, geometrical diagrams, globes and heraldry. On the right, musical instruments mingle with technology. On the left the skeleton of a stag hangs from the ceiling. A balloon floats in the air. In the distance, Adam and Eve point and name the animals; three pyramids line the horizon
