Description

Content (description)

Seven nude winged putti attempt to move a lion, which lies dead on the ground on left. One ties a rope to its leg and three behind him prepare to pull. A putto on far left pushes the lion's forehead, while the next one touches its mane. A putto by him in the background brandishes his club and surveys the situation.
