Polar Bear Skull

"It was with great relief that I bid farewell to the wild mountains, the sharp peaks and the mighty glaciers. I was alive! - saved from the danger of being trapped in this ice and dying a painful death. I was however, also aware that Spitzbergen with its sombre beauty had marked me and filled me with melancholy."
