According to the Boston Globe of August 15, 2008, "Seated Ceres", a sculpture at Forest Hills Cemetery, was stolen.
Cecily Miller, executive director of the Forest Hills Educational Trust, said the piece was fitting for the cemetery, with its symbolism of the harvest.

Fitting? Cemetery? Harvest? Of what, zombies? I mean, I know there's the whole "Grim Reaper" metaphor, but ... no. Just ... no.

The harvest comes in autumn, when all the plants are dying. See also that chick who ate the pomegranate seeds.

Well, sure, but "harvest" has far more widespread connotations than the waning of plant life. Not to mention the whole "dying" versus "dead" thing -- in that case, shouldn't a hospice be far more "fitting" a location? (Monty Python, "Not dead yet!", etc.)

I'm not saying it's incomprehensible -- as noted, Grim Reaper. I'm just saying ... unfortunate connotations. Heh.

well, i have thought sometimes that the headstones in a cemetery remind me of putting seed packets on popsicle sticks in a garden to see what's planted where. but, well, we're back to zombies or similar apocalyptic scenes.
