We are proud to carry a selection of items from The Gravestone Girls based in Massachusetts!
A face most angelic graces the gravestone of Mrs. Hannah Bicknell, the late wife of Joshua Bicknell, Esquire. The marker was erected for her and her infant child who departed this life August 11, 1765. She was in the 39th Year of her Age. The name and age of her infant are not disclosed, which may elude to a tragic tale of a mother and child lost in childbirth. We will never know for sure, but the woman-child face and imposingly large wings may give us a clue. They are buried together in Barrington Historic Cemetery #3 in Barrington, Rhode Island.
From The Gravestone Girls' website:
"To produce our three-dimensional art pieces, we perfected a casting technique which exactly replicates the original gravestone carving. The creations in our collection are derived from 17th-21st century gravestones found in cemeteries throughout the New England region. All our pieces are hand-formed and finished in a process we specifically developed. It’s important to note that no stones are ever harmed by our techniques—preservation is our primary concern!"
