The Medieval Dance of Death There's an expression "to look like Death warmed over". The similar expression in Danish is "to look like Death from Lübeck". I have always wondered what this charming Christmas-city, with its great beer and overly sweet marzipan, had done to deserve such a disparaging sobriquet. "Death from Lübeck" was a 30 meter painting, showing Death in a long chain-dance with 24 humans - painted life-size - from all classes of society, from pope to infant. The painting was destroyed during the 2nd world war and, anyway, it was only a copy since the original medieval painting from 1463 had been replaced by a new one with a new text in 1701. The painting was famous for centuries, and the burghers of Lübeck produced illustrated books loosely based on he dance of death in St. years. The dance of death was a popular and wide-spread theme in the late Middle Ages. The subject for this site is the original medieval dance of death, but I have added two sections outside this scope.

This is how the original wing appeared in the patent drawing. I warped it in Photoshop so that it appears as it does below and in the final character. Here are couple of extra wings that I auditioned for the character but in the end I decided not to use them. Here is the original dress form for as it appeared on the patent drawing. Again here is how the tricycle appeared on the patent drawing but I only used the back wheels as you see below. Here is the original version of the Gibson girl but I only needed her from the neck up as pictured below. The first image is the second Zetti/Steampunk character that I posted on Sunday called Madonna Wannbe. Tomorrows character will be Mister Moustache.
