The painting represents the vanitas of life: A Memento Mori that reminds us that time doesn t stop for anyone. This still life composes a capture of objects like a blue ribbon, music sheet, compass, measuring compass for maps, old map, bronze coin, a green glass, white coral, seashell, a skull, two books, a mechanical clock, and a candlestick with a smoked extinguished candle. All these objects expose the vanity of life, the beauty of music, the sea, the continents, and the knowledge of history.
