A young Centaur has found a lovely Bacchante. He has invited her to dance a lively measure on his broad back. And now the two step forth gaily to unheard music, but its melody flows lightly through their veins, their pulses beat in the same rhythm and evey limb answers to the call. A spring wind makes their hair fly in the air, like pennants. Joy in their youth, in their strength, in each other fills them. The whole group is a symbol of joy.
