1296. Panel one of a tragic triptych

Sasha was most fortunate. Her genes meant she would live until aged 116. For a few months she would be the oldest person in the world. It wasn’t just her genes that gave her longevity; it was her lifestyle. Hers was a healthy and stress-free existence.

How do I know all this, I hear you ask? Well, I am a writer and therefore omnipotent. I created Sasha. I know she has the genes and the way of life to live until she’s 116. So you can put that in your pipe and smoke it.

It was therefore most unfortunate when, at the age of 23, she was run over by a truck.

    And then, I got to thinking what it would be called if there were 4 (or more) panels. So, my education continues: ” A polyptych (/ˈpɒlɪptɪk/ POL-ip-tik; Greek: poly- “many” and ptychē “fold”) is a painting (usually panel painting) which is divided into sections, or panels. Specifically, a “diptych” is a two-part work of art; a “triptych” is a three-part work; a tetraptych or quadriptych has four parts; pentaptych five; hexaptych six; heptaptych (or septych in Latin) seven; and octaptych eight parts.”

    Mind you, I have already forgotten the terms for more than 3 panels.
