Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded; and the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand, it really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: you are all stardust.

[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 

Especially a a nurturer rather than a destroyer

Danse Macabre by Rob Harrison. Danse macabre scenes been featuring since the 15th century, and later included many characters at the mercy of death, including children.

Death Carrying Off An Infant, 
Stefano della Bella, 1645-1651

As for death being a woman, it is a modern 19th century concept, one of them being death the mistress who seduces all. Also, there was a connotation with death being a woman as it refereed to prostitutes and the fatal STD they inflicted - thus representing death as a woman. Paul Gauguin, symbolists such as Rops, Klinger and Redon also depicted death as a woman.
