A selection of transparencies of children's images under porcelan from Sicilian graves for a photo-book project taken in l992 in the cemeteries of Pachino, Carlentini, Pozzallo, Paterno', Noto, Comiso, Catania, Vittoria, Adrano, Rosolini, Acitrezza, Enna and Palermo. The theme behind the images with poetry of Rossetti and Whitman was that the Lord thought these children so beautiful that they be returned Unto His Sacred Holy Presence, for the Earth with its secular preoccupations was not worthy of them.
