The Deathly Cameos

I just returned from a trip to Lithuania, during which I found more interesting material that I’ll be sharing online in coming days. And while on the road, I was honored to learn that an essay that I had composed on two unusual antique cameos had been selected to post by The Order Of The Good Death.

Don’t let the name alarm; the Order – brainchild of Caitlin Doughty, undertaker extraordinaire and star of YouTube’s ‘Ask A Mortician’ series – is a group of funereal professionals, academics, writers, and artists who use the venue to explore topics of mortality in our death-phobic modern culture. It’s an erudite, entertaining, and insightful website, and well worth exploring.

Here is my post:
