So many visual clues, yet no precise meaning.
A mysterious woman in green might be a goddess, but Dossi painted over her in favor of more lush landscape. She was revealed during a restoration in the 1800s.
Other painted over clues include a suit of armor and sword hanging from the tree, a cello held by the clothed woman, and a downward gaze for the older woman.
