This is an angel who closes the Time. The Time is symbolised by a rolled sheet of paper. Inside this Time (e.g. this sheet of paper) are the Sun, the Moon and many stars. Here we see the final moment of the History. The moment when the Time disapears and only Eternity is present. This is the end of the tridimensional Space and the end of the Time.
