Dancing with Death

I spent several days in and around Boston while on vacation and several hours were spent in the historic old cemeteries looking for unique funerary art. Rebecca Gerrish, who's marker we see here, was burried in the King's Church cemetery, Boston's oldest, after she died in 1743.

You'll see more of these images and details about the various iconography in the coming days.

Would you say the Gold Mask of King Tut or the Terracotta Warriors of Emperor Qinshihuang is weird? It's all funerary art, just not as humble as that of a simple woman from mid 18th Century Boston.
