In a room, don Quixote, asleep, is protected by Wisdom (as Athena among shining clouds); his arms and barber basin remain abandoned.
On the right, Sancho, awake, is captivated by Folly (with a jester scepter among dark clouds), who shows him a crown and a castle (the promised government of the island).
Poor engraving, but acceptable.
