Andrea Ucini illustrates an extreme or irrational fear of heights known as acrophobia.

Caused by a degree of uneasiness felt by some when standing on a high structure, or near the edge of something at a certain height, acrophobia is attributed to a fear of falling.

Ucini notes the fear often occurs in someone who has an impaired sense of balance.

In his illustration of a hand gripping the cable of a cable car suspended in mid-air, he shows what it feels like for those who have a fear of heights.
