In shamanistic cultures human skeletons, or scrawny human figures with highly visible bone structures, symbolize the emotional experience of disintegration undergone by initiates to the world of the trance. Similar depictions can also symbolize ascetic renunciation. Most often, however, skeletons are viewed as symbols of DEATH, since bones last beyond the decay of the flesh and under favorable conditions can be conserved for thousands of years. Depictions of the Last Judgment (see END OF THE WORLD) often show skeletons arising from their graves-which, in the symbolism of ALCHEMY, promise resurrection and rebirth of primal or first matter (materia prima) after blackening (nigredo) and putrefaction. Usually, however, a skeleton is a visual metaphor personifying death-holding an HOURGLASS and a scythe (or SICKLE)- serving in depictions of the DANCE OF DEATH as a reminder that in the midst of life, we are surrounded by death (Media in vita in mane sumus) , an especially popular motif in periods in which epidemics (like the black death) ravaged Western Europe.
