Description

Many climbers have perished attempting to attain the roof of the world “the height, how can I keep out of the height?” were Thomas Mallory’s words in a letter to his wife in 1924. He was last seen near the summit of Everest. The idea of the loneliest death, on such a quest, and the agony of those left behind, inspired this work. The woman, with one aim, seeks out her loved one as her flags etch out the scythe of death against the setting sun.
