Painted in the late 15th century, the Lübeck artist's masterpiece depicts the transience of life, with skeletal figures of Death taking along the mighty as well as the feeble. Only the initial fragment of the original thirty metres can be seen, commencing with Death playing the bagpipes. A touch eerie, it puts our fate into a different perspective. I kept asking myself "where is my corkscrew?" That is an easy question to answer. More difficult? What would you drink on your first day in eternity? Comments
