Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The waterbeds seen here are most likely fish ponds full of carp for the owners delight and the terraces and brick grotto indicate the simple pleasures enjoyed by the owner and his family. There is a clear line of pride in the depiction of gardens from the time of the Pharaohs to all civilized periods in our history. The great delineators of Britain such as Kyp and Thoresby spring to mind as one sees the oddities of perspective and location, for such pictures were not only records, but amusing fantasies in as much as they envisage a scene from a bird's-eye view and the viewer must remind himself that with the exception of the aid of hills or man-made towers the artist could not see from this perspective.
