Artist's description:

Still life with scull ,book and vase .The Latin noun vanitas -atis means "emptiness" and thus refers in this context to the traditional Christian view of earthly life and the worthless nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. In Christian philosophy, the word vanitas derives its prominence from the Ecclesiastes, and in Vulgate the verse is rendered as "Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas". In the King James Version, however, it is translated "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity", and therefore the English word "vanity" is used in its older (especially pre-14th century) sense of "futility".
