The story

Un cœur tendre, qui hait le néant vaste et noir,
Du passé lumineux recueille tout vestige !
Le soleil s’est noyé dans son sang qui se fige…
Ton souvenir en moi luit comme un ostensoir !
— Charles Baudelaire »
Charles Baudelaire’s famous poem “Harmonie du soir”. The parallel is drawn between the end of human life, the setting night, and the resulting death of nature. The past remains intangible and full of brilliance. Like these two planters: the brass passes the time, without altering since the XIX century, whereas the plants which were planted in these, end up fading, no matter how much care is taken, and only their memory resists….

Stories do not necessarily correspond to reality. They are only given to illustrate a possible context of origin.
