A cast iron Newfoundland dog stands watch over Florence Rees' grave, who died at age 3 in 1862. There are numerous stories of how the dog came to be there. The lore of the story is what people seem to love most - trinkets, toys, coins and flowers are often found at the grave and on the iron dog. Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia
Robert Cannon’s living sculptures are full of life and movement thanks to the pieces of living moss he strategically places on the forms. The moss grows and changes while the stone stays as rigid and unmoving as always. The difference between the two materials is striking and lovely.
