Two "tilting " knights have just fallen from their mounts and snapped their lances both at the same time - a little dance step so to speak - figure of maiden on left horses caparison - ladies of the court watch from a safe position - a fifer and a drummer accompany the scene from a rear window - the man with the wheel design and the moustached knight at left and right of this equestrian wreckage.
