This painting, attributable to a Flemish late Mannerist master, may depict an allegory celebrating a reigning prince.

In the foreground figures appear to announce the fulfilment of the divine will in the assumption of power by the young prince and on the right the dog held on a lead by the man in armour symbolises loyalty.
