We are proud to carry a selection of items from The Gravestone Girls based in Massachusetts!
The spiny thistle has been a symbol of Scotland since the 13th century for its’ protection and healing properties. From the gravestone of Benjamin Gilbert, who died June 24, 1760 and is buried in the Old Burial Ground, North Brookfield, Massachusetts.
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!"
