The author accompanied the project of the monument with a significant inscription: "The crash: a human existence falls to the ground as seized by a sudden pain." These words, although characterized by a typical rhetoric, well describe the great figure that adorns the tomb. A young woman, who ambiguously rises or falls, shows her head in a yearning for vital testimony. The relationship between the partial nudity of the body and the garment is beautiful, as well as the expression, although the face is deliberately schematic, almost ideal.
