Throughout the ages, Death has been depicted in many ways but mostly as a dark ominous figure such as the grim reaper or the dancing corpses rising from  cemeteries of the “danse macabre.” But what if death was the personification of beauty, leaving a trail of misery, devastation and destruction in its wake? In the painting 'Ara ġejja l-mewt għalik' by Rupert Cefai, death is exactly that, beautiful, representing both the hope of a beautiful afterlife but also the human obsession with beauty which tend to lead civilisations towards decadence then misery and destruction.
