A woman raises a stout stick in anger against a satyr and another woman. A man holds his staff before her, in interference of this act.

A violent quarrel. A nude figure wearing a helmet made of a cock and its wings raises a long stake to prevent an angry young woman from striking at two lovers with the large stick raised above her head. The lovers, a semi-clad woman with braided hair and a satyr, look up in horror and anger. The satyr with cloven hooves grasps the jawbone of an ass ready to strike back. An angry cherub grasping a bird runs by. Trees, castle, town, and a river.
