Photographer's Note

The Berliner Dom is one of the most famous churches in Berlin, and for very good reasons. Its majestic architecture is simply jaw-dropping, and the visitor can spend hours exploring the art masterpieces that populate its interiors.
A large number of royals are buried here, and one of the most impressive tombs is the sarcophagus of Queen Sophia Charlotte of Hanover, wife of Frederick I.
The tomb is a magnificent piece of art, wonderfully decorated, but in this picture I preferred to capture just one detail: the grim reaper writing the names of the dead on a huge book. With the skeletal hand, the emaciated face, the visible teeth and the deep eyes, the statue conveys an impressively intense experience to the visitor.
