Cemetery Iconography Lecture

November 3, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Cemetery Iconography Lecture

Saturday, November 3rd, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

The design and creation of tombstones is an ancient art with deep meanings behind many of the symbols chosen for each monument. The weeping willow, the cherub, the rose that has not fully bloomed, the eternal circle of the wreath, are all symbols with important meanings, carefully selected by loved ones upon the death of those memorialized. Join us at Historic St. Luke’s for a presentation on Cemetery Iconography by Joanna Wilson Green, Easement and Stewardship Archaeologist for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

Tickets are $15 per person and advance ticket purchase is encouraged as spots are limited. Light refreshments will be provided.
