Human desires are endless and people always want to climb higher and get more of the moments when they achieve or gain something. In this work, macarons were likened to human desires because macarons look beautiful and taste sweet. There are people on the tower trying to climb higher and reach the top. The top of the tower is collapsing, and this showcases people's greed, resulting in destruction of everything they have already achieved and gained.
