Artist's Description

In a word, no. But any fan of the Master Draughtsman of the Macabre & Offbeat cannot fail, when confronted by this interesting stone, to think of the late, lamented Ted.

This marker is one of a line of similar pieces that marches straight through the middle of the churchyard at the Canonbie (Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland) United Parish Church. They are distinctive for their simplicity, & while I realize that the concept of the ‘grinning skull’ is hardly a new one, these all had what I thought were singularly benign expressions. This one appears to be showing off his new teeth. And speaking of benign, note the sweet little Orangutan face up top…. Inscriptions were illegible on most, & we had difficulty dating them, but I would guess, despite their ancient & eldritch aspects, that they were 18th Century products. A little digging, to coin a phrase, would probably turn up (to coin another phrase… sorry) more.

More on Edward Gorey here. Images of his work galore on Google Images.
