The bubbles of vanitas still lifes remind us of the transience of existence, as Erasmus said “Homo bulla est” (the man is but a bubble). A spoon is the tool that teaches you to eat as a child and when you become old and stiff you eat with a spoon again. This spoon as a conversation piece on the table and by doing the dishes tells us of the beauty of life. The bubbles from the spoon show us the beauty of the everyday life.
