The tradition for images of the Danse Macabre is of death alongside all of the different classes and stations in society. The message is clear – he is coming for us all.

 

Here is a  more recent version of the old tradition in a series of terrific woodcuts from the artist Hermann-Paul

(1864-1940).

 

The full series can be found here.
