The light colored bronze lower parts of the half-naked figures holding candlesticks for two candles in both of their hands remind of cloth with a few layers. They have been decorated with Bacchanalia symbols (grape clusters, goat legs, drum and cartridge case). The half-naked bodies of the figures have been made of dark colored bronze while other parts have been made of light colored bronze.
The two figured are wine fairies while the other two figure are satir characters.
