A Petrarchian Triumph of Death -  Antoine Caron (1520 - 1598)
XVI sec.
oil on canvas
Paris, Musee d’Histoire de la Medecine

It shows Death’s triumph over emperor and pope, and all lesser ranks of mankind, along with the two alternative paths in the afterlife: a Hellmouth is shown on the left and the blessed souls of the saved on the right, the latter on their way to a heavenly temple at the top-center of the composition.
