I waited for several seconds. The spasmodic movements ceased. The face relaxed, the lids half closed on the eyeballs, leaving only the white of the conjunctiva visible, exactly as in the dying whom we have occasion to see every day in the exercise of our profession, or as in those just dead.

A figure detail from the diorama 'Plunge' by Ferdinand Hodler in the Alpines Museum in Bern, Switzerland. 28 jan 2005
Taking his theme from the triumph and tragedy in the first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865, Hodler created two gigantic dioramas in 1865 and 1894 measuring 7,25 x 4,35m each for the World's Fair in Antwerp. They are a symbolic representation of human fate in general.
