In Mourning for Her Misspent Youth
Elissa Gordon
Mixed Media on an 18” x 24” painted Wood Panel

This collage is based on an altered photograph of the burial crypt of my ancestors in Northern Italy.
The angel’s banner reads “in mourning for her misspent youth” in Italian.
The family name over the entrance was replaced with a sign that reads “older than dirt” in Italian.
