Circular headstone epitaph

Circular lettering for a headstone epitaph.

This headstone epitaph was carved in a circle with no obvious beginning or end, in a continuous rhythm which echoes the content of the inscription. The letters were carved in slate and painted with a light wash to mimic the natural cut surface of the slate.
