Destruction of the church wall in Basel, 1805

Mechel Basel

Destruction of the dance of death in Basel. Watercolour by Daniel Burckhardt-Wildt. On the wall we see (from the left) abbess, physician, herald, councilman, young woman, peasant and Adam and Eve. The figures come in a rather random order, showing us that the scene is more or less fictitious. There's a larger version here: Destruction.
