French artist Rodin created a large piece of art depicting the gates of hell. He worked on the project until he died, constantly adding various sculptures to the piece, creating an elaborate work of art. He added a figure named "The Falling Man" in 1886 and had realized by then that because of the sheer complexity of the door it would be impossible for the door to function properly. It is in this that The Falling Man is both metaphorically and literally a point in which man fails to achieve his goals and falls into the horror of his actions. Rodin was commissioned to make a working door and because it did not work the door was never delivered to its intended buyer.
