That is the question. The human question. Much like this human question hand-poked piece by Max Harris. Given Hamlet’s famous soliloquy is about him questioning his own life, and contemplating what happens after death, it really works well with this design. Taking a look at these lines, you can see how the figure not only appears as a question mark, but also as a man ascending in a resurrection pose, an image linked to both death and rebirth.
To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause – there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
