From the FIRST MATE's
An Artist's Engraving on Stone
This is a photo of a beautiful clear glass oil lamp/lantern
Actually this is engraved on a grave marker in Oak Hill Cemetery (Evansville, Indiana). Although the stone looks like gray in this close-up photo, the marker is a beautiful black color.
The above engraving is on the grave marker for Sue Hebbeler's Uncle Norman (shown below) and there is a mirrored replica on the opposite side of the face of the marker. This is either done by a stencil with sand blasting or it is laser etched. These black granite markers with etchings of photos, objects, scenes or lettering have become very popular in cemeteries to honor & remember a loved one.
