of a man; a woman is taking aim with a bow and arrow

who is smoking a pipe, seated on a huge ball to which his foot is chained.

in a big bowl on a stove; a head with a fool's cap and an arm
holding a bauble appears from a pipe at the side of the stove
4:A prize-ox on parade
A young woman is dancing to the tune played by Cupid
A young couple look at a satyr who burns himself
when embracing the fire he considers beautiful
A young man and woman are tuning their lutes;
two hearts, tied together, are seen above the table
A cupid is taking aim at a young woman who sleeps against a tree;
behind the tree a spider is lowering himself towards a sleeping snake
