The Vanitas pictures emerged beginning with the late years of the 15th century. These pictures have a symbolic meaning, as most old paintings in art history: they are a representation of Vanity and also Vainglory (unjustified boasting). It describes through the visual language the meaningless in the efforts of gathering valuable material objects, earthly goods and pursuits and the ephemerality of earthly pleasures: in the middle of the richly depicted pearls, gold, coins and jewels there are sculls. This concept comes from the Latin words of Ecclesiastes.
