                             Artist's Statement
" It is the Undertaker that the living depends on and without much
admiration, for it is he alone that can be trusted to transfer their loved ones
to the site of their new home...the Graveyard.  When we must join the
departed we depend on this proprietor to take us underground so as to be
included in the grave community that distinguishes the living from the dead.
Photographs of our likeness are displayed on our stones to serve as
passports, evidence of identity clearance required by travelers on this
journey.  Oh, by the way, it is interesting to note that all that is contained
within the walls of the Graveyard, the rich green grass, the wild and
friendly animals, the eyes of the dead...all this, for the living to enjoy."
