Dance of Death Figures – Unknown [German]

19th century / Ceramic

Death is shown as a skeleton leading a diversity of people including kings and bishops, businessmen, peasants, paupers, and pretty girls off to their fate.  Costumes and poses reflect the diversity of the human world,  yet Death is the most democratic of forces – that from which no one can escape.  These small figures are similar to modern-day nativity scenes displayed during the Christmas season.
