John’s Dead Head
Here's someone who will call attention to your fridge! Meet Mr. John Fuller, a gentleman interred in East Parish Burial Ground, Newton Centre, Massachusetts in 1717. The carver of his stone fully exaggerated this “death head”, making it bulbous and embellished with one curly, extravagant eyebrow. The head shape and hooked unibrow are clues this carver's inspiration might have been “The Old Stonecutter”, an important Boston carver who worked circa 1650-1695 and influenced many gravestone carvers who followed.
Many gravestones contain adornments of a smaller scale. These shapes are the perfect size for accessories. We've created a fun line of magnets from these images. Let us choose the color. Your fridge will thank you!
