George Washington, Lodge No. 285. Chartered in 1853, George Washington Lodge 285 is a Masonic Lodge in the Fifth Manhattan District under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York. Not so much a statue as a relief of some sort, but I’m including it anyway.

A sample of the statues to be found at Kensico Cemetery. These are not necessarily representative, or the best – merely those that I came across during my brief visit. Browsing the internet I’ve come across many more. Another reason to go back again.

Unfortunately I’ve been unable to find much information about them.

Female sphinxes indicating Greek rather than Egyptian origins. They flank the entrance to the Shriners memorial.

Annie and Alfred.
