Sculptures, Carvings and Statues Are Popular Monument and Memorial Options
Rome Monument has experienced monument designers and sculptors on staff that incorporate customized sculptures, carvings and statues in the memorials we design and build. Statues are a memorial option that is popular with our customers. These carved or cast figures of a person or a symbol are affixed to a monument or memorial. They are commonly made of bronze, granite or marble. The skilled sculpture craftsman at Rome Monument are adept at the art of making two and three dimensinal representations by carving and shaping granite, marble and other stone materials. Commonly requested sculptures include religious figures, saints, crosses and flowers. Since 1934, Rome Monument has been enhancing gravestone and cemetery monuments with carvings of religious objects, floral designs and personalized figures and symbols.
We also design and sell stand alone statues that are not part of a larger monument. We design and sell granite and bronze statues to families, cemeteries, churches and other public or community organizations that are responsible for memorialization projects, veterans memorials and historic landmarks. Some of the most popular sculptings, carvings and statues that Rome Monument uses to enhance a monument design include representations of angels, hearts and religious symbolism. Memorial and monument sculptures, carvings and statues are for sale in Pittsburgh at the Rome Monument showrooms. Call 724-770-0100 for prices.
A cemetery statue is a carved representation of a person or other object that marks the site of a burial plot. Custom designed statues, handcrafted by the skilled stonecrafters at Rome Monuments, are available in many different styles and shapes, often featuring symbols and imagery that convey the specific nationality or religion of the deceased. A statue can be built in combination with other monument types such as flat, slant, bevel, and raised or upright monuments. They can also adorn the façades of mausoleums and columbariums. Cemeteries in Pittsburgh often permit the use of different monument types including statues to mark a burial plot. You can select from a wide variety of granite colors for both traditional and cremation memorials in different price ranges.
