A ragged gypsy woman, along with her equally ragged son, is reading the palm of a fancy woman in a shepherdess dress.
The boy has got a coin in his palm in Götz's watercolour (above). In Kruspe's drawing (right) Death has a kind of scarf on his head. Either it's the same scarf as the boy's, or Death is a woman in this case, just as for the king.
Death derides the fortune-teller, who makes money from prophesying others, but could not foresee her own death.
Der Tod zur Zigeunerin:
Death calls her "Egypterin". The English word "Gypsy" stems from an old belief that Gypsies originally came out of Egypt.
