A piece with a moral message, showing the triumph of death over worldly objects, symbolized through a large army of skeletons devastating Earth. In the background is a barren landscape which also contains scenes of destruction. In the foreground, death is shown leading its armies on a chestnut horse, destroying the world of the living, who are driven toward a huge casket, with no hope of salvation. Every social class is included in the composition; there is no hope of being saved by power or devotion.
