How many times have you heard an elderly person muse about the parting of friends and the inevitability of the hereafter (for everyone).  My first idea was to depict an old man at the graveside of a companion.  While creating this sculpture, I thought, "Who would see more funerals than a minister?"  Thus, the final character of Another Funeral was decided.  The minister's age has been captured primarily in the hands while the face reveals the emotion of the moment.  Carved from single piece of butternut and mounted on black marble base.  Close to 3 feet tall.
