In the first moment, Sisyphus, whole in himself, approaches the boulder with a face of blank shock. In the next, his form seems to split off to left and right, leaving three pale apparitions in its place. These identical specters diverge in behavior. The face at left strains with a burst of helpless laughter, the one at right seems to cave into itself, distracted, pained. Between these, the initial face retains its blank gaze.
