Hartje Mausoleum Homewood Cemetery

This little Egyptian mausoleum is noticeably different from others of its style. The lotus columns and winged sun disk are there, but the rusticated stone is not usual on Egyptian monuments, and the sides of the mausoleum do not slope in the approved Egyptian manner. In fact this seems to be a standard rustic mausoleum with an Egyptian porch and door. But the door is something to see. In addition to its lotus-pattern grille, it has what appears to be a large knocker, which one might think superfluous in a house of the dead, but then one never knows.
