[John, 05/08/2018]

The early deaths of a stone carver's three children led him to create this permanent dollhouse tribute over their graves. Tiny furniture and Christmas items are visible through the windows. Inscription: "One by one the leaves are falling, fading day by day, and in the silence heaven is calling, one by one our lambs away."
