Depicting the exchange between Death and the Physician, this illustration is associated traditionally with the text

shown below.



Death to the Physician:

Mr Physician, inspect the anatomy,

On me, whether it is made right.

Because you have also executed many,

Who now look exactly like I.

The Physician:

I have with my urine-inspecting,

Helped both men and women.

Who inspects my water now?

I must now go away with Death.
