This white-marble monument in the St. Francis Cemetery at Phoenix, Arizona, memorializes the life of an infant girl who died shortly after her second birthday. A drapery on the top of the gravestone reveals a sleeping baby representing the small child.
The drapery represents the passage from one realm to another; the veil that exists between the Earthly realm and the Heavenly one—the last partition between life and death.
