This 33" diameter, perfect bowl is carved out of a very large, rough chunk of black slate. It is a horizontal memorial honoring residents of a safe home for single, pregnant women a century ago. The spiraling inscription reads: "Between 1902 and 1954 the Good Samaritan Agency of Bangor helped nine hundred and ninety-five young single women to give birth and care for their children in safety. One woman and eighty-five children remain here." The womb-like bowl fills with the water of life that protects the inscription and the stories of those buried here.  BACK   NEXT
