Shippensburg, Pennsylvania

Precious Lord Take My Hand:  Earth is earth and heaven is heaven, and never the twain shall meet: except in cemeteries AND on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  Michelangelo uses hands to symbolize the creation of Adam and, soon thereafter, Eve.  Memorials like this use hands to symbolize the return of their progeny to heaven. Spring Hill Cemetery. [2013]
