Louisville, Kentucky: Hand Out Grave

The tombstone is a large, open palm, suggesting the generosity of the person buried beneath it. Cave Hill Cemetery is obsessively tidy, so any offerings left in the palm are quickly taken away.

A Hand Out in a Cemetery

This grave is marked by an outstretched hand with an open palm. The gesture is in honor of the generosity shown by George Anne Sotsky, who is laid to rest here.
