The oil painting, Dance To The Music of Time, was painted by Nicolas Poussin in 1634. The painting is about mythology. Mythology, religious story and naked figure take a big part in Poussin's oil paintings.
The painting can be divided into two parts. One part is on earth, and the other part is in the sky. On earth, there are four people who are dancing in a circle with hand in hand. It means that time is always changing and life is circular. Apart from that, there is an old man who is playing the music for those dancing people. It is attractive that the old man has wings, liking angel. On both sides of the people, two babies are sitting on the ground. They look so cute and happy and enjoy the music and dance so much. The infants, dancing men and the old man represent the human life from the young to the old. Moreover, it means the development and change of time.
In the sky, some gods are flying, and the others are riding on the horse. For them, time is forever. Life is forever. So the comparison between the people on earth and the gods in the sky tells the truth of time and life.
