Mural named 'Jägerbegräbnis' in Saalbach, Austria

This mural in Saalbach dates back to 1810. It shows an odd funeral procession. The body in the coffin is a hunter (german: ‘Jäger’), and the mourners of the funeral (german: ‘Begräbnis’) are animals. Therefore people in Austria call this kind of picture a “Jägerbegräbnis”.
