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
