Dance of Death: The Old Woman

Death Comes to the Old Woman

The Old Woman

The old woman is accompanied by two Deaths: one leads the way and beats on a musical instrument, while the other urges her on to her death by striking her back, but the old woman barely pays any attention as she focuses on her rosary beads. The old woman's piety will not save her from death.
