This could probably be a separate thread, but the pic you mentioned, Logan, with the 'odd flaw in the stone' looks to me like a tree. This image then lead me to think about a movie I saw just the other day called 'The Fountain'. Anyone having seen this (w/Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman) will probably guess where I'm going - though the movie itself is so incredibly, visually stunning on its own, it deal with death, and the device they primarily use is a tree representing all kinds of things, eternal life being only one (in my mind at least-I'm still absorbing it all). So, I will just add 'The Fountain' as my addition to the Thanatology discussion. As 'A Fine and Private Place' would be the story of Thanatology in book form, 'The Fountain' could be it's movie version. I will purposely not go into the details as to why the tree in your picture relates so directly to this film, so as not to give anything away. I'll give it 5 stars as a thanatology-lovers movie!
I see dance being used as communication between body and soul, to express what is too deep, too fine, for words. ~ Ruth St. Denis

Nice pics everyone! (Nice Christ church too!, I use to pass by there all the time)

Here are some from some local cemeteries. This is Laurel Hill cemetery. I spent a lot of time here studying. I use to belong to the association of gravestone studies


Also for those that know me Memento Mori is always in my signature. A couple translations- Remember you must die, or Remember Death. Being a paranormal investigator it was very fitting. I researched this as well. When I first came upon it it was on a gravestone. An early victorian headstone. The skull with the wings usually accompanies it.

(Having some problems getting the pics up but I will post when I figure it out)

I don't know.... This St. Dominic seems a little too light on the religion and a little too heavy on the "Broadway Musical", if you know what I mean..... ;)

More of Bisbee's Evergreen.....



This looks like a really, really old altar piece from a Spanish or Indian church....

Any Ideas of what it is?

They brought in Swedes, Norwegians, Finns and Germans to mine the copper but the vast majority of the miners were Serbs from the Balkans.

People who do this should be slowly castrated with a dull, rusty knife so they don't reproduce.
