|Commentary||Second illustration dedicated to the encounter between don Quixote and the two "ladies", who appear taking his armor off; now, much more detailed in faces and gestures than the previous one.
The representation of both "ladies" is quite remarkable; their suggestive figures create a very humorous scene with don Quixote looking at one of them with wide open eyes.
