Fugit Hora! is Latin for Time Flies and serves as a warning to the living their hourglasses were running and could be at the last grain of sand at any moment. From the gravestone of Samuel Sargent, died September 22, 1710 and buried in Bell Rock Cemetery, Malden, Massachusetts.
Many gravestones contain adornments of a smaller scale. These shapes are the perfect size for accessories and is one of the many amazing colonial castings we have in the Newburyport shop by the Gravestone Girls of Worcester MA.
Colonial stone carvers were true folk artists, and we are blessed to live an area where we can immerse ourselves in the artistry of their work. Importantly, these casting are hand-formed and finished, and no stones are ever impacted by the creation methods. The Gravestone Girls are deeply committed to preservation - and can often be found speaking to groups about cemetery conversation throughout the region.
Given the hand-made nature of the process - each casting may have some variation in color and tone.
