    The subject is an allegory of triumphant Love. Art, music, science and martial glory are transient and worthless compared to heavenly Love, or Virtue, that conquers all. Willeboirts Bosschaert was responsible for the general composition and the figure of Amor, while another painter, probably Paul de Vos, has painted the armour, musical instruments and other symbols of temporal glory and knowledge.
