The Daily Art Source

The New Orleans Tombs series is the brainchild of New Orleans artist Grey Cross and part of a larger artistic series called "Walking in the City of the Dead".
Each sculpture is handmade and one of a kind. They are based on the original photo work of the artist taken in the various cemeteries of the New Orleans area. Some tombs use real graveyard dirt collected throughout the area and specially dried and sanctified. Each sculpture is signed and numbered on the underside and comes with a certificate of authenticity which includes a short obituary/bio of those interred within the tomb. Please note that these are fictitious tombs and people and are an amalgam of real New Orleans cemeteries. The obituary/bio is included with each certificate.
