Totenkopf

Totenkopf (lit. "dead man's head") is the German word for the skull and crossbones and death's head symbols as well as for the Death's-head Hawkmoth. The "Totenkopf"-symbol is an old international symbol for death, danger or the dead. It consists usually of the human skull with or without the mandible and often includes two crossed long-bones (femurs), which in the German-named form during the period of the Third Reich almost always had the crossbones behind the skull and nearly covered by the skull's facial view, only leaving the ends of the crossbomes visible.
