Pythagoras invented the letter "Y" and put into it the meaning of the moral choice that every person faces, two options for the path of life.

This composition is filled with symbols and emblems used by European painters of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Still life should be viewed from the bottom up. This is a person's path from the womb to death with a moral choice between good and evil, sins and true faith.

Branches and fruits around the bouquet form a garland, personifying the annual cycle and the finiteness of earthly existence. The macrocosm in the microcosm.
