Creepy Old man's Dance of Death Interpretation (edited version)

The Danse Macabre: A lighthearted facial display set to the classical piece as illustrated by this old gent.

Dance of Death, also variously called Danse Macabre (French), Danza Macabra (Italian and Spanish), Danca da Morte (Portuguese), or Totentanz (German), is a late-medieval allegory on the universality of death: no matter one's station in life, the dance of death unites all. La Danse Macabre consists of the personified death leading a row of dancing figures from all walks of life to the grave, typically with an emperor, king, youngster, and beautiful girl—all skeletal. They were produced to remind people of how fragile their lives and how vain the glories of earthly life were. Its origins are postulated from illustrated sermon texts; the earliest artistic examples are in a cemetery in Paris from 1424.
