James P. Stiver Monument, Homewood Cemetery


The life-size statue is unusually positioned, so that she always blocks the view of the name “Stiver”; but then James P. Stiver’s name is clearly visible above her head, so we may allow her that artistic license. The monument stands in the shade of substantial trees, and the statue is posed so naturally that she can create the impression of a real woman who has momentarily paused at the Stiver monument. She nearly made old Pa Pitt jump out of his skin.
