Vulkan überrascht Venus und Mars

Vulkan überrascht Venus und Mars

More about this artwork
The tale of Venus' adultery has been handed down from Homer's Odyssey and Ovid's Metamorphosis and recounted here - not without a touch of humor: Vulcan suspiciously checks his wife's bed, while the fully outfitted god of war has crept under a table and tries, unsuccessfully, to quiet the yapping dog.
