We are proud to carry a selection of items from The Gravestone Girls based in Massachusetts!
This small heart adorns the gravestone of Mary Munroo symbolizing the heart as the seat of the soul. Her soul was released for its flight to Heaven upon her death August 12, 1692 at the age of 41. She is buried in the Old Burial Ground, Lexington, 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!"
