In this painting, in which two mythological tales are visualized, the painter shows the consequence of vanity: decay. It tells the story of Niobe and Ikarus. After Niobe insulted the goddess Leto, her children were assassinated by Apollo and Artemis (the children of Leto). Niobe transforms into stone. Her tears become a waterfall flowing out of the rock. Three horses jump out of the rock, facing their downfall. They are the symbol of vanity. Feathers whirl through the air, as the vain Ikarus, after several warnings still flies to the sun. The wax of the wings constructed by his father melts. Artemis and Apollo rest satisfied in the background.
