A SERIES OF outdoor mosaics decorate Resurrection Cemetery in Affton, Missouri. These monuments, which date from about 1974, illustrate salvation history and were among the last commissions of the famed Ravenna Mosaic Company.
Quickly changing weather during my last visit prevented me from photographing all of the mosaics, so I was only able to show the mosaics on the eastern side of each monument. Here I present the western mosaics:
The Last Supper.
“I will be your God, you will be my people.”
Moses and the Burning Bush.
The Blessed Virgin Mary.
I'm not sure what this represents. [Update: this is most likely Creation.]
