Flower still life painters like Veerendael often depicted flowers that bloom at different times of year, creating imaginative bouquets like this one. The choice of flowers and insects are likely significant: the iris is associated with the Virgin Mary, poppies signify death or sleep, and carnations refer to Christ's passion. The beetle may be an omen of evil while the butterfly, which is reborn after entering a cocoon, symbolizes resurrection. Taken together the flowers and insects in the present painting suggest a Christian message of salvation from death and evil.
