Item description for Graven Images: New England Stonecarving and its Symbols, 1650-1815 by Allan I. Ludwig...

In Puritan New England, with its abiding concern for things not of this world and its distrust of forms and ceremonies, one art flourished: the symbolic art of mortuary monument stonecarvers. This carefully researched, beautifully illustrated work was the first to consider this art in depth as a meaningful aesthetic-spiritual expression. It is reissued for today's readers, with a new preface outlining changes in the field since the book appeared in 1966.

Reviews - What do customers think about Graven Images: New England Stonecarving and its Symbols, 1650-1815?

A Resource on Colonial Visual Art  Apr 19, 2003
Particularly striking are the many plates which provide a rare insight into the artistic notions of a culture that generally frowned on decoration. As a document on early American notions of form, the books holds its own with the best studies of architecture, pottery and antiques that I have seen.
