Artist's Description

At Westbere in Kent, UK, there is a curious ledger stone to ‘Thomas and Edmond Gilbert twinns born 19 March anno domi 1639 deceased anno domi 1640’ with an incomplete carving beneath of two infants holding each others hands across themselves.
It is incomplete as no heads were ever carved leading to conjecture that the Gilberts may be the worlds first illustrated recorded conjoined twins!
