From the author:
A severe storm in 1333 caused a natural disaster. Storms on Mount Pilatus swept huge amounts of timber into the Reuss river. So much so that people racked their brains over what to do with all the wood. It was decided to build a covered bridge, the Chapel Bridge. The oldest in Europe.
In 1599, the City Council decided to decorate the bridge with paintings. One of the three themes was life and death. Death seems to turn on itself at random. The hand of death is on the shoulder of an old man, but it also points to a small child. Death is always lurking.
