A magnificently shrouded obelisk. The cross on the side makes it a Christian monument; one rarely sees an obelisk without a cross in a Catholic cemetery. The abundance of drapery makes one feel as though there would be something improper about an unclothed obelisk.
One response to “Ott Obelisk, St. John Vianney Parish Cemetery”
It’s as if the obelisk was to be officially unveiled; but it never happened, and the sheet veiling it petrified.
