Hirst Cross


In 2005, Wayne and Carolyn Hirst travelled to Germany to explore some family history, while in Germany they saw a statue of a lady weeping at the cross. The statue was very moving to them both. Mr. Hirst, being a contractor for the Federal Government, appreciated architecture. The couple appreciated the detail in the piece, to include the heavy rock texture of the cross and subtle statue of the woman figure. The woman wailing in front of the cross was a symbol of power and love to them. The Hirsts commissioned Sears to replicate the statue and place it in their family cemetery near Summersville, WV. Just after the cross was completed, Mr. Hirst passed away and was buried in front of the magnificent piece that he had only dreamed of having one day at their cemetery.
