A scene of symbolic entities portrays the Dutch East India Company as an economic, political, military, and cultural powerhouse. Justice, Minerva, Mercury, and Neptune take prominence in the scene, while the colonized people of the southern and southeastern regions in Asia are in the lower quadrant. The inclusion of other figures and objects suggests their importance for the multinational corporation.
