On the left, you will recognise the dark-blue globe that we have seen on the previous details.

On the right of it, we have an other strange building of a pinkish colour with two blue oblique steeples and terminated by a tube from which birds are escaping.

Next to this fantastic construction, some men are carrying a dead animal hanged on a stick, but, oddly, this animal, instead of drooping, stands face up, contravening gravity rules.
This is the idea on the world back to front very present in the iconographic and literary language of this time.
This scene and other scenes which can be seen on other fragments of the central panel demonstrate that we are in front of a false paradise where all what is represented in it is not what it seems.

More on the right, there is a building of three floors, the first one of a dark-blue colours with convoluted shapes, the second one of a pinkish colour and the third one of different colours, with a personage doing equilibrium exercises on its top.
A group of creatures looking like antediluvian humanoids is homing in on it.

All these structures (and those of the previous details) remind stills or other chemistry devices, which induced some historians to consider that most likely, the intrinsic meanings of the work are related to the world of alchemy.

In the sky, on the right, you will note two men flying as well as a fish.
