The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXIX.

The Merchant

Der Kaufmann.

Qui congregat thesauros mendacij vanus & excors est, & impingetur ad laqueos mortis. — Prover. xxi.

THE MERCHANT.
Death arrests him among his newly-arrived bales.

Vain est cil qui amassera

Grandz biens, & tresors pour mentir,

La Mort l’en fera repentir.

Car en ses lacz surpris sera.
