    Stunning group,! that would be incredible to own a set of originals from that date

  • Sarattus

    These skeletal characters are very reminiscent of Renaissance woodcuts of Death clothed in various costumes escorting various people from this life.

    ……..nowadays, I’m not sure a chemical company would want its name associated with images of skeletons…. It would evoke the wrong idea….. ;)
