Malmų, The King

The Dance of Death in Malmų, The king
The king.

The king stands with his sceptre and crown and is wearing extremely comfortable shoes.

Death apes the king and wears a crown and a mantle. This recalls the story about the three dead kings and the three living: "What you are, we were; what we are, you will become". It looks as is Death is stepping on the king's foot.
