“Supplication” Poster, 24x36”

Exclusive to Muses Miscellany, this poster of an original, fine art photograph will make any space as unique as you are.

Posters print on thick, premium paper for excellent print quality and durability. The paper’s semi-gloss finish adds a beautiful sheen that also resists scuffs and fingerprints.

Your poster will be printed especially for you after you order and normally should arrive at your address in 4-7 business days.

(Note: during the winter holidays, printing and delivery can take longer than usual. So make sure you place holiday orders early!)

You can also feel good about your order’s environmental sustainability because:

* Printing posters only when ordered conserves materials, eliminating waste.

* Ink is GREENGUARD Gold Certified (a low-VOC/chemical emissions rating with stringent requirements).

* Packaging is plastic-free.

History

This lovely cherub graces the resting place of Thomas Moore Clark, Jr. (1865-1869) in Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery.

Thomas’ epitaph reads:

Our Thomas
Earth has returned the gift which Heaven lent us.

Given that cherubs serve as holy messengers, this epitaph is especially fitting.

Cherubs often appear on children’s graves from the Victorian era, when child mortality rates were high. Diseases like diphtheria, smallpox, and influenza took an especially hard toll.
