This depiction of the festival of Diana, Roman goddess of forests and animals, accompanies three other scenes glorifying the nature gods Faunus, Bacchus, and Pan. In each print a frame of flourishing vegetation surrounds nude and semi-nude figures who frolic around an altar with a bust to the god. The caption below the Festival of Diana declares that this celebration is being "troubled by satyrs," whose muscular, goat-legged bodies and leering faces appear at either edge of the wooded grove.
