Found these stone thrones on Church Street. I have an idea that I’ve seen them before, perhaps in winter covered with snow. Still, they were new enough (to me) that I photographed them. I didn’t remove the cloth bag on one of them though. I try to avoid touching items clearly left overnight. I have a good reason; it’s a long story.
This artist, Elizabeth Smith Jacobs, has several pieces around town. Some trash cans are adorned with lovely tiles, Bullock has planters, and of course there is this memorial bench in Rand Park. If you’ve never taken the time to really look at this bench, do so. It’s a wonderful memorial.
from the artist’s website: As we all worked together on the details, I became the vehicle that allowed the Anastasopoulus family to create this tangible object that embodied their grief and celebrated their beloved son. It has became clear that this is the kind of work I want to do. I feel honored to have been a small part of this healing process.
