Jane Long 1778

full stone tympanum

In Memory of
Mrs Jane Long
Wife of
Mr John Long
who died Nov'r 5th 1778
Aged 36 Years

An interesting image reflecting the transition in the mid 1700's from winged skulls to winged heads. The jaw with teeth is located where the neck should be. The next step is for the jaw to become a neck which would transform the skull into a crude head.
