A boy and a girl are side by side, visible from the chest up under the arch of a Roman building. The girl rests her hands on the boy’s shoulder as the statue of a Roman general can be seen behind them, bearing on the pedestal the following maxim:
Brevis illa voluptas abrogat aeternum coeli decus, which can be translated as
This short pleasure takes away forever the glory of heaven. It is originally found in Opus macaronicum by Teofilo Folengo.
