Forest Lawn Memorial Parks

Where: Forest Lawn Memorial Parks, Cypress, CA

Who: Pickel Studio and Forest Lawn

Completed: Spring 2001

What: Forest Lawn was ready to open the next phase of their outdoor garden mausoleums on the Cypress property. They wanted 32 crypt fronts with mosaic and a central mosaic feature. The owner had chosen Christ Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane by Heinrich Hofman.

Plan of Action: Pickel Studio created a full size drawing of the painting and then created mosaic sections on paper backing. Foreman Paul Thornton and his crew fabricated the crypt fronts in the studio. They installed the Christ feature on-site in the cemetery to be permanently mounted to the wall.
