Danse Macabre. Germany. 1700s Nine women of different social rank from empress to fool dance with the dead. The entire economy of salvation is depicted, from the Fall, through the crucifixion, to Heaven and Hell. Twelve more traditional Dance of Death figures, from pope and emperor down to fool, surround the central image.
