We are proud to carry a selection of items from The Gravestone Girls based in Massachusetts!
The Sun and Moon represent the Alpha and the Omega; a reference to Christ who is “the beginning and the end” in the Christian belief system. These celestial bodies also mark the beginning and end of each day, a metaphor for the brevity of human life. From the gravestone of Margaret Cole, who died March 9, 1792 and is buried in the Old Burial Ground in Sutton, 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!"
