Sixteenth-century allegorical painting-A young woman in a sumptuous embroidered V-shaped bodice, with gown and fine damasked under-skirt, head-dress and feathered hat, strums a lute – a symbol of learning, harmony and pleasure.  An elderly gentleman holds a skull in his right hand and a convex mirror in his left.  As he holds up the mirror for the woman to gaze into, we see that her own reflection sits alongside the reflected image of death.
