Artist's Description

Coastline
disappearing into sea,
eroding lands
shifting sands

Barriers fight
the devastating tides,
man’s best hand
only slowing the decline

Markers of progress
or lack thereof,
fragile and helpless
and doomed from the first

Perhaps a symbol
of our inevitability –
nothing lasts forever
regard the end


The title comes from “The Death of Ivan Ilyich” by Tolstoy, in which Ivan discovers he is dying and cannot come to terms with his fate. He carries a locket with the inscription “Respice Finem” (Regard The End).

Location: Broughty Ferry, Tayside, Scotland
