The Danse Macabre of La Chaise-Dieu

Jacob von Melle Old Testament

From "Explication De La Danse Des Morts De La Chaise-Dieu" by Achille Jubinal, 1841. The dance starts with Adam, Eve, and the subtil serpent. Then comes a preacher and a figure that conceivably might be playing the bagpipe, like in Lübeck and Tallinn. There's a larger version here: Chaise-Dieu.
