The sculpture depicts the Biblical parable of the five foolish virgins who fell asleep while waiting for the bridegroom without making provision for enough oil for their lamps. As a result of that, they could not attend the wedding feast. It is each individual’s own responsibility to be prepared for the afterlife and no help from others can be expected when your time to depart arrives.
