Crazy Choir Stalls in Amsterdam Old Church

I hope you had a good Halloween!  This may be a day late, but these choir stalls in Amsterdam’s Old Church (Oude Kerk) are pretty creepy.  They’re so whimsical and creative, though, that it’s hard not to be charmed by them.  I think the images are based on Dutch sayings and allegories.  Anyone know what they are?
