Man, right hand supporting left elbow, left hand on face, seated with crossed legs on cushioned bench; three-faced head, crowned, amid six wings as personification of love; man embracing woman gesturing with her left hand toward another three-faced head, crowned (?) amid six wings; man, arms extended, pursuing woman.
