The "vanitas" was a genre of symbolic art intended to remind the viewer of the transience of human life and the futility of earthly pursuits. Serving as a memento mori, a skull was the usual centerpiece. Here, an open pocket watch represents the passage of time; the flute and manuscripts are tokens of worldly endeavors, left behind and soon to be forgotten. The sheet of paper at bottom center shows a passage from Psalms 26.
