Vermeer by Wislawa Szymborska?

'Vermeer' - Wislawa Szymborska


So long as that woman from the Rijksmuseum
in painted quiet and concentration
keeps pouring milk day after day
from the pitcher to the bowl
the World hasn’t earned
the world’s end.

Can you please explain this poem a little? I don't get it.
Update: Can you please explain the" the World hasn’t earned
the world’s end." part? PLEASE?
