Presentation of two characters, male and female, in a rather tight frame. The lack of any additional attributes or surroundings makes it difficult to clearly recognize the people shown. The specific, as if animalistic, physiognomy of the man prompts him to describe him as a satire. The entertainment companions of these forest creatures were often nymphs, not always satisfied with the attention they received. The show is therefore quite special, as the woman seems to be willing to accept the arms of satire surrounding her.
