A vanitas still life image featuring a skull set in a mass of ivy with a snuffed candle. In the vanitas style, the skull and snuffed candle sympolize the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. Ivy is an evergreen, and by this connection stands for eternity and life, for immortality.
