The scene is allegorical. The theme is the meaning of the time from the birth to the death of every man: at the outer periphery of a moving wheel sit personalized the seven ages, one for every age (each age is covering ten years). At the bottom of the wheel, a dragon symbolizing the death prepares to devour the representative of the seventh age. At the sides of the dragon there are two figures, symbols of the Day and the Night that move the wheel of time.
