PANDEMONIUM IN TROMPENBERG
The Margrave of Trompenburg has ordered two statues of Pan to grace his newly planned Arcadian garden, from the great sculptors Meneers Scheemakers and Rysbrack. They have just been delivered to the palace and the Margrave has ordered Herr Rackett the court poet and philosopher to come up with a suitable inscription for the larger statue. Here we see Herr Rackett contemplating the blank plaque and wondering where such beings as satyrs and nymphs belong in the order of things.
