Also illustrated on the wall of the church in Meslay-le-Grenet (see our Off the Beaten Path Tips), is the legend of the three roistering young knights who are returning from a hunt when they encounter three skeletons who speak to them with the warning "that which you are, we were". I have seen a similar depiction in a 14C mural in the Campo Santo in Pisa, except in it there is a hermit who shows the skeletons and pronounces the warning. Such artistic renderings are quite rare, Do you know of others? Or Danse Macabres? (My picture does not have all the details).
