Mother and Child

Rosehill Cemetery

Chicago, Illinois

September 2004

 

This incredible monument to grief is for Frances M. Pearce, who died in childbirth along with her infant daughter. The statue was created by Chauncey B. Ives, an American sculptor working in Italy at the time it was carved. The piece remains in museum perfect condition because of the glass case that keeps it safe from the elements (see below).
