Southampton Old Cemetery
The Pearce Memorial
This is one face of the beautiful memorial for Robert Pierce (1792-1861).
The sculpture shows the three graces, Faith, Hope and Charity and was designed by Richard Cockle Lucas. It is a Grade II Listed monument.
There is more information about the memorial, along with another picture - here -
Out of interest, could you move from side to side and see if the face/eyes seem to follow you, it does on my monitor and I'm wondering if I'm imagining things.
For other pictures of memorials please look at this group of pictures - Southampton Old Cemetery -
Each one has information about the memorial and as much as I can find about the individuals whose lives they celebrate..
