The Child
Death, shown here as a skeleton, takes the child from his mother and older sibling. The child seems to wave goodbye to his family; they are clearly distressed by the child's death, but he is strangely calm. Death holds his hourglass up and examines it almost triumphantly. This image is a comment on the cruelty of Death and its disregard for age and naivety.
