    This is my second still life painting exploring the Vanitas theme. The hourglass and pocket watch are representing   the passage of time, the birds, eggs, medicine bottles and ultimately the skull represent the the certainty of death, The books, coins and necklace are symbols of pleasure and wealth which are left behind.
