Asia is represented by a Mongolian figure, dressed in flowing silk robes, the folds of which are delicately rendered in marble. In the background is a dragon-shaped porcelain jar.
Europe is represented with a lyre, book and Ionic column-the three objects symbolizing Music, Literature, and Architecture.
