Swiss Reaper

Black Death in Switzerland

Swiss Reaper thanks to Wayne Nowazek

The Grim Reaper appeared in Europe during the 14th century, when Europe was experiencing the Black Death, the result of the plague (1347–51). Death was something that surviving Europeans had on their mind. Skeletons are symbolic of death, representing the human body after it has decayed. The robe is reminiscent of the robes that religious figures of the time wore when conducting funerary services. The scythe is representative of agricultural practices of the time: harvesters used scythes to reap or harvest crops that were ready to be plucked from the earth… and that's what happens when humans die: they are plucked from this earth.
