Ophelia is a tragic figure in the Shakespearean play "Hamlet." There is an otherworldly expression on her face as she lies unconscious in a river. She is surrounded by the beauty of nature as she floats between life and death.
It is displayed on the green wall on the right side of the artwork exhibit.
