This is a 1868 painting by Cesare Felix dell'Acqua called, "Angel and Devil," or "Playing Diabolo The-Devil-on-Two-Sticks." Cool, right? I don't have a diabolo, but when I was in a contact juggling phase and buying acrylic spheres in New York, my parents got one for my little sister. To the best of my knowledge, she's never practiced with it enough to do anything particularly cool, but it would be a worthy endeavor. This is not something I know much about, but apparently you can do very impressive things. Go look on youtube... this is some guy on Japanese television, and I can't even understand what he is doing.
