Image: Jung’s family grave at the Protestant Church Graveyard in Kusnacht. The gravestone bears the arms of the Jung family, and beneath this the names of father, mother, sister Gertrud, wife Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, and C.G. Jung.

The top and bottom borders repeat in Latin the motto he chose for his house “Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit” (Called or not called, God will be present)
