Inspiration truly is everywhere
~ isn't it?

Today's posting is about being inspired by symbolic gravestone/headstone art...
more specifically, those sweet little lambs we see on ancient children's graves ~
a bit morbid to think about, but the stonework on these are just beautiful...
if one can look past the sadness of what they are representing.
I turn to these for inspiration for my needlework, but especially so in my rug hooking designs.
... what better symbol to use on a rug made from wool?
here are a few of my favorites ~ borrowed from my Pinterest boards.
or you can simply Google-search & type in the keywords:
'gravestone art headstone symbols'
|love the striped-effect of the marble|
|perfect, primitive profile|
|ravages of time....|
|different poses with legs curled or unfurled|
|just plain sweet|
|an almost-alien, naive lamb on a more contemporary stone|
|a sweet pile of lambkins|
|especially love the pose and texture of fleece on this one|
|tiny and weathered|
|i believe this to be contemporary, more garden art than marker, but still loverly|
|another fav. with nubby coat|
and don't forget to study other gravestone art as well...
such beauty & much inspiration waits on your next visit to a local graveyard.
~ I find walking among them peaceful and a quiet place to reflect.
Hoping you all have a beautiful Friday
~ filled with inspiration at every turn!
