tomb of Alfred Hrdlicka und his wife Barbara
III of III
the tombstone shows a female body uniting with death. Death is represented as a skeleton, which holds the woman's body, draws to it, and intimately unites with it.
the artist said, "She left me, now she is cheating me with death."
At the same time the cycle of life is represented: the sexual act stands for birth, the female body for life and the skeleton for death.
