A statue of Jesus atop a grave in the Rosedale/Rosehill Cemetery Complex in Linden, New Jersey. Behind his head you see a strip club advertisement looming over Route 1/9. A viewer may either associate this uncanny juxtaposition with holiness, industry, or some conflation of the two, and with grimness or awe.
