Glory among the Cardinal Virtues (detail)

Fresco
Villa Loschi Zileri dal Verme, Biron di Monteviale

The detail shows the angel of Fame, sounding a trumpet and Prudence, with a serpent wound around her arm and reflecting upon her image in a mirror held up by a putto. To the right, Evil falls from the sky - a horrible old woman terrified by the appearance of Glory.
