Below her, four putti disport themselves, the arrangement of their bodies forming a ring shape with the goat. The latter is a symbol of lust and was thought to embody the devil. One putto carries an alchemist's pot to use as her cauldron, another holds a thorn apple plant, an ingredient with magical properties, and a third, with his bottom pointed towards the viewer, is breaking wind. Durer's initial has been purposely made backwards.
