The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein


The Countess

Die Grafinn.

Ducunt in bonis dies suos, & in puncto ad inferna descendunt. — Iob xxi.

Death helps her at her tiring by decorating her with a necklet of dead men’s bones.

En biens mõdains leurs iours despendẽt

En uoluptez, & en tristesse,

Puis soubdain aux Enfers descendent

Ou leur ioye passe en tristesse.
