Six leafs from “Auch ein Todtentanz” illustrated by Alfred Rethel

Six leafs from “Auch ein Todtentanz” illustrated by Alfred Rethel,  12th edition from 1891.

The wiki page states these were inspired by the Belgian insurrections of 1848.    Overall these translated well to black acrylic.  I had to adjust the color and contrast to make the design stand out in the pictures.  Of all the designs, Leaf Two and Leaf Six turned out well, only Leaf Three was a disappointment.  But reviewing the source I see that I didn’t adjust the contrast enough before importing it into Inkscape.
