A Flemish tapestry (circa 1520) depicts the triumph of Death (represented here by the three Fates of Greek myth) over Chastity, a symbol in Petrarch's work The Triumphs. First Love triumphs, then Chastity triumphs over Love, then Chastity is overcome by Death, Death by Fame, Fame by Time, and Time by Eternity.

I dreamt of it last night.
