From Cornelisz van Haarlem's series of The Four Disgracers. The full set depicts Tantalus, Icarus, Phaeton, and Ixion, each of whom fell while trying to enter the sphere of the gods. Ixion fell in love with Hera, the wife of Zeus; as punishment, Zeus bound Ixion to a flaming wheel which revolved continually in Tantalus, the Greek Hell. Both Ovid and Virgil wrote about Ixion's fate.
