The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

IV.

The Consequences of the Fall

Adam baut die Erden.

Maledicta terra in opere tuo, in laboribus comedes cunctis diebus vitæ tuæ, donec reuertaris, &c. — Genesis iii.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE FALL.
Adam, aided by Death, tills the earth. Eve, with a distaff, suckles Cain in the background.

Mauldicte en ton labeur la terre.

En labeur ta uie useras,

Iusques que la Mort te soubterre.

Toy pouldre en pouldre tourneras.
