The Empty Chair

This mourning figure in the Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati kneels next to an empty chair.  Typical of mourning figures, she is barefoot, and expresses her grief with a lowered head that she holds with her hand.  The vacant chair symbolizes the loss of a loved one, often a child.
