The Dance of Death (1493)
 
 
This picture is of the Dance of Death, attributed to German artist Michael Wolgemut (1434-1519, Nürnberg/Nuremberg).  It was first published in Folio CCLXI Recto of Hartman Schedel's Chronicle of the World.  Reanimated and even lively skeletons were a frequent medieval artistic motif when dealing with the subject of the Black Death or Bubonic Plague, which struck Europe in 1347.
