Graven Images: New England Stonecarving and its Symbols, 1650-1815

Graven Images: New England Stonecarving and its Symbols, 1650-1815

$ 39.95

By Allen Ludwig

In Puritan New England, with its abiding concern for things not of this world and its distrust of forms and ceremonies, one art flourished: the symbolic art of mortuary monument stonecarvers. This carefully researched, beautifully illustrated work was the first to consider this art in depth as a meaningful aesthetic-spiritual expression. It is reissued for today’s readers, with a new preface outlining changes in the field since the book appeared in 1966.
