Triumph of Death - Camposanto Pisa
Painted by Buonamico Buffalmacco between 1336 - 1341 this fresco in the Camposanto, Pisa, depicts the Triumph of Death. This fresco is a variation on the Three Living and the Three Dead. On the right hand side of the painting rich men and women converse in a spring garden, one is playing music, another holds a hawk, and a small dog sits on the lap of another.
At the top of the right hand side of the painting, one monk sits study a book, whilst others are tending animals and trees.
In the bottom left of the fresco the three riders confront their corpses, whilst a monk with a scroll points telling them that this is their fate as Death triumphs over all.
