Death is forever.
I know this is serious, but what is Death
holding up in his right hand ?
It looks like a can of pork and beans.
Serious yes, and I think it fits nicely as an illustration to the subject. (I almost added a smiley but did not:) )
I was also wondering what he is holding in his hand. Some research is needed.
Looks like an hour glass.

I believe it's an hour glass. Which indicates that time is running out.
The title of this opera is "Memento mori" and translated from Latin means "remember that you must die" and the hourglass makes sense.
Cheers and thanks Hans.
