The sixth and final woodcut of Rethel’s Dance of Death shows a street after the battle. As the smoke dissipates and each side mourns its dead, Death, divested of all garments save a laurel wreath, rides his horse to the top of a barricade, carrying a seemingly blank flag. While the animal licks blood from the wound of a fallen man, Death turns his eyes toward a dying insurgent.
The title reads in the original German:
Der Tod als Sieger.
