Helbling grave statue [Title Unknown]
circa 1893 / Creator Unknown / Ripley
This statue marks the grave of J.P. Helbling in the Maplewood Cemetery in Ripley, OH. The woman is depicted with her head bowed and may be holding flowers in her left hand proper, but it is unclear due to the eroded condition of the statue. The work is presumed to have been created and installed circa 1893, the recorded death year of J.P. Helbling.
