The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XLI.

The Escutcheon of Death

Die Wappen des Todes.

Memorare nouissima, & in æternum non peccabis. — Eccle. vii.

THE ESCUTCHEON OF DEATH.
The supporters represent Holbein and his wife.

Si tu ueulx uiure sans peché

Voy ceste imaige a tous propos,

Et point ne seras empesché,

Quand tu t’en iras a repos.
