One of a series of 19 prints inspired by a short novel by D.H. Lawrence titled The Man Who Died. The prints are not a description of the book's narrative, but capture fleeting moments by giving shape to feelings and inner experiences that trace moments of existence inspired by the novel. Here, three rounded shapes in reddish brown float on lined paper. Two are connected by a black line.
