Description
Poem beneath image: Le masque est bien seant à l'ame deguisée/ et la dance et le bal convient a l'inconstant/ L'un cache son dessein et voile sa pensée/ et l'autre nous fait voir qu'il n'est jamais content./ Comme on voit ce flambeau se consumer tuy même/ et ce dieu enjuré et ces chapeaux gastés./ Tout ainssy fait Comus a ce tuy la qui l'aime,/ car il le perd enfin dedans ses voluptés. Image depicts a large open banquet room abuzz with various festive activities. In the background, toward the left of the room, people eat at a long table; toward the right, revelers stand in a large group, while musicians play trumpets from a balcony above them. In the foreground a group of four figures dance in a circle, wearing loose-fitting tunics and wreathes of leaves in their hair. At the threshold of the banquet room stands a solitary figure; he wears a short tunic and a wreath of leaves in his hair; he leans on a spear and holds a torch in his hand.
