Alpine equipment: lantern, ice axe, mitten
This still life was probably created in the context of an expedition to the Monte Rosa in 1894. The Italian physiologist Angelo Mosso (1846 - 1910) headed this expedition to examine the energetic economy of the human organism in an alpine environment. Mainly respiration experiments had been carried out.
