From the book Cave Hill Cemetery: A Pictorial Guide and History of Louisville's "City of the Dead" ~ "Symbolic statue by Emile Wolff (1802-1879) of Rome. The German-born student of J.G. Schadow (1764-1850) cast a child in the Nemean lion skin mythology reserved for Hercules. The animal's tail acts as a Herculean club, while the fruit of spiritual struggle for immortality is grasped in the child's left hand." (via Diane Deaton Street, top photo)
