This detail scene, from the Papyrus of Hunefer (ca. 1275 B.C.), shows the scribe Hunefer's heart being weighed on the scale of Maat against the feather of truth, by the jackal-headed Anubis . The Ibis-headed Thoth , scribe of the gods, records the result. If his heart is lighter than the feather, Hunefer is allowed to pass into the afterlife. If not, he is eaten by the waiting chimeric devouring creature Ammit composed of the deadly crocodile, lion, and hippopotamus. Vignettes such as these were a common illustration in Egyptian books of the dead. The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text , used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BCE) to around 50 BCE.

Composition of flowers , less obvious style of Vanitas by Abraham Mignon in the National Museum in Warsaw . Barely visible amid vivid and perilous nature (snakes, poisonous mushrooms) a sole bird skeleton is a symbol of vanity and shortness of life. In the arts, vanitas is a type of symbolic work of art especially associated with still life painting in Flanders and the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th centuries, though also common in other places and periods. The Latin word means " vanity " and loosely translated corresponds to the meaninglessness of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. Ecclesiastes 1:2 from the Bible is often quoted in conjunction with this term. [ 1 ] The Vulgate (Latin translation of the Bible) renders the verse as Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas . The verse is translated as Vanity of vanities; all is vanity by the King James Version of the Bible .

The Liberation Through Hearing During The Intermediate State ( Standard Tibetan : bardo " liminality "; thodol as "liberation" [ 1 ] ), sometimes translated as Liberation Through Hearing or transliterated as Bardo Thodol , is a funerary text . It is often referred to in the West by the more casual title, Tibetan Book of the Dead , a name which draws a parallel with the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead , another funerary text. The Tibetan text describes, and is intended to guide one through, the experiences that the consciousness has after death, during the interval between death and the next rebirth . This interval is known in Tibetan as the bardo . The text also includes chapters on the signs of death , and rituals to undertake when death is closing in, or has taken place. It is the most internationally famous and widespread work of Tibetan Nyingma literature. [ 2 ]
Dance of Death , also variously called Danse Macabre ( French ), Danza de la Muerte ( Spanish ), Danza Macabra (Italian), Dança da Morte (Portuguese), Totentanz ( German ), Dodendans ( Dutch ), Surmatants (Estonian), Dansa de la Mort (Catalan) is an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death : no matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. The Danse Macabre consists of the dead or personified Death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave , typically with a pope , emperor , king , child, and labourer. They were produced to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life. [ 1 ] Its origins are postulated from illustrated sermon texts; the earliest recorded visual scheme was a now lost mural in the Saints Innocents Cemetery in Paris dating from 1424–25.
