Inspired in part by Marcantonio's engraving and by the Roman sarcophagus (now in the Villa Medici, Rome) that was one of Raphael's sources for the design, Bonasone shows far less interest in sculptural form. His more lyrical version of the subject is composed of softly modeled figures and flowing surface patterns, such as the curvilinear lines that form the water.
