Scharffenberg: The Abbess

Abbot Canon

The abbess. From the jumbled mix of Holbein's Great Dance of Death and Basel's Dance of Death published by Huldrich Frölich. The woodcut is one of the six that disappeared between Frölich's edition from 1588 and The Brothers Mechel's editions from 1740 and later.
