Sculpture of a palm laid over the headstone for Charles (1813-1864) and Mary (1816-1865) Pope in Oakwood Cemetery, 940 Comstock Avenue, next to Syracuse University, in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. The headstone is a large open book covered with palms, with the deceased’s names engraved in storybook lettering. It’s one of the most unique monuments I’ve ever seen.
Oakwood Cemetery was designed by landscape architect Howard Daniels and opened in 1859. It is a secular Victorian “rural” or “garden” style cemetery where over 60,000 people are interred in 160 wooded acres.
