THE CHILDREN* [Take Thirty-two]
In 1885 my great grandmother Lerona had a vision in which she visited the Spirit World with her deceased mother. After the vision she wrote about seeing the spirits of deceased children (if you want to read her account of the spirit children see: http://www.polyvore.com/lerona_slife_349/set?id=71943032 ). I was ready to move on to the next episode in Lerona’s vision when, alas, I encountered a Roman sarcophagi in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. The sarcophagi had such lovely carvings of children; I had to photograph them; I had to use them in sets.
