Clark Stump, Union Dale Cemetery

“Rustic” tree stumps in stone are a surprisingly popular form of monument. Sometimes they carry the name of a deceased family member on the stump of each sawed-off branch, an obvious symbolism that old Pa Pit thinks verges on the tasteless. The Clark monument is an interesting variation on the idea, with its ivy vine and owl adding to the romantic country atmosphere.
