WHO SEES THE GRIM REAPER??

IF YOU SEE IT, THEN TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

IF YOU DON’T SEE IT, THEN TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE


WHO SEES THE LOOMING IMAGE OF DEATH?

NOW THE REAL CHALLENGE:

There is a story behind every symbol or archetype. What is the story behind this one?

UPDATE:  Thank you all who took the time to comment and share your thoughts. This image evoked very simple reactions. Is the story behind the symbol about as interesting as a lecture on Accounting 101? Well, I don’t know but if you are interested, I am sure Wikipedia or the Internet has a resource where you can find out.

From what I learned, the basic story components are simple. The original symbol were the two keys only. The other images were added over the years.

Meanwhile, I am inspired by this to CREATE my own legend or fable. Look for it soon.

This is one small community on Twitter but recently, their game has caught the interest of more and more users. This week alone, what begins with them in the morning blossoms and flourishes by the evening hours. Celebrities on Twitter begin participating, like Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. The game is too fun to resist.
