The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XLV.

The Fool

Quasi agnus lasciuiens, & ignorans, nescit quòd ad vincula stultus trahatur. — Proverb vii.

THE FOOL.
The Fool dances along the highway with Death, who plays the bagpipes.

Le Fol vit en ioye, & deduict

San scavoir qu’il s’en va mourant,

Tant qu’à sa fin il est conduict

Ainsi que l’agneau ignorant.
