<br />
The mural continues for another 21 meters with a long procession with 40 figures.<br />
<br />
 To the right of the skeletons playing music is a depiction of the crucification. Christ is depicted on the cross with an arrow in him that has been fired by a skeleton with a bow. This suggests that because Christ was a man he suffered the fate of death as we all will.<br />
After Christ is a Pope also pierced by a spear, as are all the human figures in the mural.
