Dance of Death: The Preacher

Death Comes for the Preacher

The Preacher

Even as the preacher stands before the congregation, Death stands behind him holding a jaw bone, as a symbol that death is the better preacher of the two. The jawbone is an allusion to the preacher's talent as an orator, and a reminder that behind the mouth lies the sskeleton of death. The preacher, a man of God, is not immune to the judgment of death, which comes for all men.
