[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]
I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.


it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman 

and such a fashionable one, at that

Citipati
Citipati, Lord of the Cemetery, is a Tibetan Buddhist figure which loosely represents intertwined male and female skeletons. These two androgynous figures which together form Citipati are considered to be guardians of cemeteries and are honored by semiannual ritualistic dances. As Citipati is comprised of the two halves of the human body, man and woman, the figure is also said to symbolize the counterparts of the human life cyle, birth and Death.
