A fantastical view of a maze set in a wild landscape. To the left musicians and lovers revel on a barge whilst on the right food is about to be served beneath an arbour. A stag-hunt is underway in the centre background with a circular temple beyond and a distant view of the Piazzetta di San Marco in Venice to the right. The painting seems to celebrate the pleasures of life: food, music and dancing.
