Human figures spread out below a dark landscape

Human figures spread out below a dark landscape, 1930
Kahlil Gibran

'I sometimes imagine myself, my bodily part, after death, lying in the earth and returning to the elements of earth: the great loosening, the change everywhere, the opening into simpler things, the widening out into those things from which anything may be built up again, the great Return, such deep quietness and a passing into the substance of things.' (Virginia Hilu (ed.), Beloved prophet: The love letters of Kahlil Gibran and Mary Haskell, 1972, p. 365)
