La mort du fossoyeur

So, a few weeks ago we had a contest for Carlos Schwabe's La mort du fossoyeur, or, The Death of the Grave-Digger. Although it seems Wikipedia took down the original picture I linked to, this didn't stop Klaus from creating an excellent entry:

(Carlos Schwabe, La mort du fossoyeur, 1895)

Many congratulations and supreme kudos! Bragging rights and commendations are in order!

P.S. did you know Schwabe painted this thing, for which his first wife modeled the angel, when he was 17-18? Dude was married and doing paintings like this, while I was worrying about prom and statistics class.
