La Danse Macabre: Halberdier and Fool

Clerk and hermit Speech balloons Authority and dead king

The halberdier and the fool are among the ten men that Guy Marchant added to the dance in the 1486-edition. The placement is rather odd, now that the hermit has finished the dance. This scene is the only one that doesn't take place among arcades. There's a larger version here: Halberdier and fool.
