The Crack In The Wall

Artist

Tom Phillips

Medium

Photograph - Micrography

Description

This image is a micrograph (photograph through a microscope) of gneiss from the famous Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. It was collected at the summit of the mountain by Karina Taugwalder, a descendent of Peter Taugwalder Sr. and Peter Taugwalder Jr. This father and son team were the guides of the first party to successfully reach the summit in 1865.

While the base of the mountain is sedimentary rock, The summit is composed of gneiss from the Dent Blanche klippe. This klippe is part of the Apulian plate which, geologically recently, broke from Africa and was deposited on the Tethys ocean. This mass later collided with the European continental crust and resulted in the orogeny of the Matterhorn.
