Memento Mori

‘The Dance of Death’ has a skeleton holding a crossbow with the caption

‘“Ma flesche (asseure toy) n’espargnera personne
Vous danserez trestout ce balet, que je sonnne”

“My arrow (I promise you) spares no one
You will all dance the ballet of which I sing”

– Meaning that we are all dancing to the ballet of life, Avoiding the Arrow… But one day as promised we will not be spared.
