New Albany, Ohio: Globe in Hands Headstone

The Earth. Two giant hands. An unusual tombstone. The globe looks like the battered surface of the moon -- or a planet before refinement by an immense artistic being.

Globe in hands. Globe In Hands Headstone

Definitely off the beaten path, but I'm glad we took the detour. You can see it from the road, but you must drive into the cemetery to see it up close. Scripture verse carved in stone at the base to remind you "He's got the whole world in His hands."

Globe in Hands Headstone

This is one of the most unique headstones I have ever seen. I made a wrong turn the other day and found it. A complete stone world being held up by two hands. This thing was huge.
