Dance the Macabre by fit51391 Dance the Macabre by fit51391
A papercut based on Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book when the ghosts of the graveyard dance with the living inhabitants of the house outside. In the audiobook version, bits of the song (performed by Béla Fleck) are played between each chapter break. You can also listen to the original version of the song here (composed by Saint-Saëns): [link]

Cut from thick black cardstock with a cream background. Took around 7 hours to complete since there were so many tiny cuts for each skeleton!

Awesome work! And it reminds me of that scene in Deathly Hollows Part 1 where they tell the story of the 3 brothers
