Lewisburg, Pennsylvania

Grave Guardians ~ Egyptian Revival?   Are the Giza Sphinx and the Nittany Lion comparable when you find them graveside? Aren't they both guardian spirits? Now have some fun. Count the toes on each foot; count the toes on the headstone pawprints; compare. Ready to track down the story? It will lead you to State College, Pennsylvania, and to the way in which pop culture transforms our lives even unto death. Just read the epitaph: "Some people come into our lives and quietly go. You came into my life and left a pawprint on my heart. And it will never be the same." Lewisburg Cemetery. [2013]
