Looking at the painting one could recognize the duality of its images and meanings. We see three vessels filled with life-giving liquid. From the central vessel, a mountain cup, rushes down a stream of water. In ancient Rome the current water was considered as sacred. The Romans associated its flow with the course of time. Here, a man and a woman thank each other for the time spent together, measured by the falling water of life. But the cup is also a symbol of wine. So, the scene could be interpreted as a ritual of offering the wine. And in wine whiles the wedding of earth and sky, wrote the great German philosopher Heidegger. Thus, the man and the woman might express gratitude to forces protecting their union. Freshly cut flower introduce in the picture a dynamic element contrasting with static background of the colonnade of glasses.
