This unique tote shows a detail from an anonymous 16th- century German drawing in The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. The dance of death (danse macabre in French) was a popular theme among medieval and Renaissance artists. The imagery of skeletons dancing with people from all walks of life'from emperors to peasants'reminded viewers that no one lives forever.
