A winged skeleton, death, in an almost erotic kisses the forehead of a young man collapses. By 1930 Llaudet family lost a son in his youth and wanted to make a sculpture for his tomb, which represent the following verses of the epitaph Cinto Verdaguer:

and encouragement lost faith embraces
fall feeling the kiss of death"
