After the manager's retreat, Gregor notices a picture hanging on the wall: "On the wall directly opposite hung a photograph of Gregor from his army days in a lieutenant's uniform, his hand on his sword, a carefree smile on his lips, demanding respect for his bearing and his rank."

The picture symbolizes


Gregor's ambivalence about his future


Gregor's surprise at his current state


The degree of Gregor's decline


Gregor's regret for the brevity of his time outside his room


The sense of timelessness in that moment
