The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

I.

The Creation

Die Schöpfung aller Ding.

Formauit Dominvs Devs hominem de limo terræ, ad imaginē suam creauit illum, masculum & fœminam creauit eos. — Genesis i. & ii.

THE CREATION.
Eve is taken from the side of Adam.

DIEV, Ciel, Mer, Terre, procrea

De rien demonstrant sa puissance

Et puis de la terre crea

L’homme, & la femme a sa semblance.
