Money for God’s sake
Art for art’s sake.
I was asked to do a rubbing of the brass grave marker plaque of Monsignor Hawes in the Utakarra cemetery chapel, by the Cathedral Precinct project. Monsignor Hawes had this made for himself in about 1936 because he thought he was going to spend his retirement in Geraldton, and be buried here.
He ended up going back to the Bahamas in 1939, and was buried there.
My image isn’t going to be used, as they have decided to exhibit an old one that was already hanging in the Cathedral.
It was an interesting exercise, nonetheless.
The rubbing will be on display in the new Cathedral Precinct when it opens in September.
