|Willian Mortensen (1897-1965): The Death of Hypatia|

But it doesn't have to be grim! Even Death himself, when he's not on the job ... sorry, when he's not working, likes to indulge in lighthearted social intercourse. He's quite the party animal!
|The Dance of Death (1493) by Michael Wolgemut|
... and the waltz:

... wrestling wildlife:
|Hundetroskab (1900) by Louis Moe|
... or simply a long ramble in the countryside:
But above all he enjoys the company of under-dressed women:
... though he has been known to swing both ways quite happily and is always up for a threesome.
|Hans Sebald Beham (1500–1550 ): Death and the Indecent Pair|
So if you see him, say "Hi" from me!
