The Bones Of All Men


"The Bones Of All Men" is part of the Dance Of Death woodcuts (1523–26) by Hans Holbein the Younger.

The Dance of Death refashions the late-medieval allegory of the Danse Macabre in a Renaissance Reformist satire.

Holbein's woodcuts show the figure of Death in many disguises confronting individuals from all walks of life. No one escapes Death's skeleton clutches; not the innocent, the righteous, the rich, or the pious.
