        • Description : Nude woman reclining on a goat-headed creature with a winged child shooting an arrow at them, while another child holds a torch.
        • Identification : Venus, Cupid, sea monster, putto
        • Interpretation : allegory of Lust - Venus entwines her fingers in the creature's beard representing erotic intent, while the monster licks her hand in response. Cupid is poised to shoot an arrow at Venus, while in the background a putti adds to the amorous imagery by holding a flaming torch, meant to suggest the burning ardor of desire.
