The Neoterist
Karissa, 20. Music fanatic. Hopless book worm. Art freak. History hawk.
  1. “Skeleton clothed in tattered flesh holds a scroll bearing the Latin inscription, “I am what you will be. I was what you are. For every man is this so.” The artist -probably Hans Leinberger – has depicted the cadaver in a graceful pose that mimics that of Adam in Albrecht Dürer’s famous engraving of Adam and Eve”


    The piece was created circa 1520
