Visiting Vermont Cemeteries exposes the visitor to the powerful craftsmanship and unique perspectives on life and death. Pictured below are three famous pieces from the Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont. The easy chair was carved and marked “Bettini” ponders the time spent here on earth. Simply known as “Bored Angel”, the second stone was carved by Louis Brusa. The third stone is one of the most famous and was carved from a single piece of granite and boasts a life sized person sitting there thinking about eternity for all eternity. Visited each year by many, cemeteries are one source of history that can amaze all visitors with their unique style and message.
