This is the theme of the paintinghighlighted by the recent restoration, which removing previousrepaintings has highlighted the figures of Adonis, (on the right) Venus (on the left of the painting) and Mars. The legend says that Adonis was born from the trunk of a tree open. Adonis (on the right) armed with a spear, while hunting with his dogs.Her beauty was proverbial and Venus felt in love with him, a consuming,unrequited passion. One day while he was hunting Adonis, was mortally wounded by a wild boar. the goddess, who was passing on her chariot, came to his aid, but it was too late. Legend tells that even the blood of young fertilizes the earth. The tree is the central focus of the work, associated with the cult of the Mother Earth, female symbol of fertility. Venus, ont he left side ot the work, accompanied by the carriage with the swans (attribute of her beauty), is located on the banks of a river with Mars in love with her.
