This picture can be depicted in many different ways on how they died, but there is no denying that they looked like they died together because of love.  When I see this image I imagine a scenario that something tragic or scary was happening, but since instead of running away from whatever it was they looked at each other and said if we die, we die together. If you look closely at the arms of the skeletons you can see them intertwined which shows that they did not just die lying down but by holding each other in an intimate way. However my favorite aspect of this image is that I can see a heart formed between their bodies and it opposes the saying “till death do us part” because in a way it did but it did not.
