The picture of typefounder Danne(n)berg was paid for by his wife, Mrs. Anna Dorothea Danne(n)berg.
The typefounder is at work in his nicest clothes with his assistant in front of the melting furnace (you see the chimney in the background). The picture, like so many others here in Erfurt, is more of a portrait than an actual dance of death. Death shows up behind his victim, but he does not kill them, does not drag them off, and most importantly: he does not dance.
Der Tod zum Schriftgiesser:
These verses are longer than usual: Six lines each.
There's a small error in Götz' text. He has repeated the word "Lettern" instead of "Blättern", so the verse ends: »mit güldnen Lettern […] auf ew'gen Lettern«.
