In this part which is at the centre of the panel, there is a round pond the shape of which is underlined by a cortege of riders, compounded nearly exclusively by men, mounting on miscellaneous animals, some real, other fantastic, such as leopards, lions, bears, unicorns, deer, donkeys, griffins coming from the medieval bestiaries.The choice of these animals has been interpreted as symbols of lust.

The pond could represent the Eternal Youth Fountain, a very widespread theme in the sixteenth century's paintings, unless it would be waters in which men purify them for their sins.
It has also been thought that it could be the "Adultery Pond", in which the women bathe, while the men are riding around in circle and wear horns (symbol of incredulity), feathers of peacock (symbol of vanity), ibis and other birds.
