 Every artist -- whether in the field of music, visual art or written fiction -- tries, now and then, to unsettle the viewer, listener or reader.  How unsettling is this?  Intensely moving -- and somebody on YouTube had the idea of putting Hilmarsson's music called "Coffin" with this painting called "Prigione di Lacrime" by Roberto Ferri.  And it works.  Some sort of magic is achieved by the combination of music and image --  and a still image here is much more effective than a moving one.
