The Elusive Light
This beautiful, neoclassical bronze statue, called “Meditation” and designed by sculptor Charles Calverley, depicts a woman sitting in contemplation under the maple trees. It is a monument to Jeptha (1820-1887) and Sarah (1818-1907) Boulware in Albany Rural Cemetery, on Cemetery Avenue off NY State Route 32, in Menands, Albany County, New York. The couple had two children, Theodrick (1844-1876) and Hannah (1845-1901). Dr. Jeptha R. Boulware was a surgeon and a major in the 177th Regiment, New York National Guard during the American Civil War.
