A DYING ART?

a sweet tribute spotted in Darien, GA, a little town south of Savannah.

These new cemeteries with flat grave markers and clumps of flowers real and fake just don’t do it for me.  Give me broken off columns, urns draped with a cloth  perpetually sliding off its shoulders, sweet little cherubs forever smiling down on us mortals.  Yes, there are artists working in ceramics and metal who are making urns for our loved ones’ ashes (or what the funerary homes call “cremains”).  But is anyone today sculpting  statuary that speaks of lives cut short and the hope of life eternal?
