“Hans Holbein’s painting The Ambassadors ..presents in the forefront of the picture an elongated object, which only becomes recognizable as a skull when one walks away and looks from a certain angle.” – According to Lacan, this skull represents the “annihilation of the subject” of consciousness..; ..what is absent, or rather what vanishes, is the subject. –
