THEME OF DEATH
From the author:
I made a still life of a stillborn calf. I chose the door of the Meggenhorn Chapel as the background. Religion can give comfort in times of death. The rosettes above the calf form a triangle, a reference to the triangular shape of the pictures in the ridge of the bridge.
In 1993, a fire broke out and almost the entire Chapel Bridge went up in flames. As a result, 2/3 of the paintings were destroyed. After restoration and renewal, 110 of the original 158 paintings are now back on the ridge of the bridge.
The woman dressed in black has smoky eyes. It is a black day in the history of Lucerne.
