The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

V.

A Cemetery

Gebein aller Menschen.

Væ væ væ habitantibus in terra. — Apocalypsis viii.

Cuncta in quibus spiraculum vitæ est, mortua sunt. — Genesis vii.

A CEMETERY.
A crowd of skeletons, playing on horns, trumpets, and the like, summon mankind to the grave.

Malheureux qui uiuez au monde

Tousiours remplis d’aduersitez,

Pour quelque bien qui uous abonde,

Serez tous de Mort uisitez.
