About this work

Description

Centre, a statue of many-breasted Nature. Left, a man with a candle and the sun (representing physica?); right, a man with the staff of Aesculapius (Hippocrates? representing medicine). The staff of Aesculapius has the snake's head at the bottom

The coat of arms includes a Habsburg double-headed eagle above the shield, presumably of the Academy's patron at the time; it appears to differ from the shield of Karl VI (emperor 1711–1740)
