Vanitas: A category of paintings (often, but not always still-lifes) alluding to the futility of life and the transience of earthly joys and possessions. The main vanitas symbol is the skull (standing for death), which is usually combined with other objects symbolizing the certainty of the end of all human existence on earth, such as a burnt-out candle, an empty/toppled cup, or rotten fruit, as well as symbols of wealth (money, regal adornments, jewelry) and sometimes, symbols of the arts and humanities (books, musical instruments), which outlast human life.[1]
