The image of death

“Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds”  –J. Robert Oppenheimer (Bhagavad-Gita)

20 bucks to the lovely reader out there can correctly identify the hidden origins of this image (Death with the Scythe):

The image of death holding a scythe goes wayyyy back. Any lovely soul
want to take a guess at the origins of it? The comments are open!

Major props to the artist, who is here.
