The painting is filled with intricate details, such as the ornate chandelier hanging from the ceiling, the elaborately carpet on the floor, and reflections of the figures in the convex mirror on the back wall. The glass also reveals two additional figures standing in the doorway, one of whom may be the artist himself. One of the most fascinating aspects of the painting is the symbolism embedded within it. For example, the dog at the feet of the couple is often interpreted as a symbol of fidelity, while the shoes that have been discarded on the floor suggest that the figures are standing on holy ground. Other scholars have suggested that the painting may represent a marriage contract or a betrothal ceremony. Its intricate details and mysterious symbolism continue to captivate viewers to this day, making it a true masterpiece of the Renaissance.
