Number Our Days
by Art Ticknor
Bas-reliefs and incised quotes from the
Henry & Arabella Huntington mausoleum, San Marino, CA
"Heaven lies about us in our infancy"
~ Wordsworth, Ode: Intimations of Immortality
"And every shepherd tells his tale
under the hawthorn in the dale"
~ Milton, L'Allegro
"Yet the vineyard's ruby treasures
brighten Autumn's sob'rer time"
~ Thomas Moore
"So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom"
~ Psalm 90:12
The bas-reliefs were sculpted by John Gregory (author's photos from 1980-81). The photo of the Huntington mausoleum at the top of the page was from the now-defunct www.medievalgeek.com site.
