An interpretation of The Lamentation over the Dead Christ, painting created by Andrea Mantegna around 1480. Drascek choose this famous painting to create a drawing that - in the face anatomical details - is also a portrait. But here no one is weeping for his death: the absence/silence is the central topic of the drawing, the right quiet silence.
