Galleries with animals or Gallery of espaliers (2)
A tripartite pergola, held up by four pairs of Corinthian columns with gilded bases and capitals, supports the wooden structure which the climbing gourds wind their way up.
Bouquets of flowers
Inside the pergola, three majestic bouquets of flowers are on display. A huge variety of flowers can be identified, and the bouquets are placed in three vases which are made to look like richly decorated bronze.
Animals and landscapes
In the foreground we can see a range of animals: a cock, a parrot, a heron and a feline. Behind the pergola, we can make out gardens and landscapes.
