A statue of Jesus atop a grave in the Rosedale/Rosehill Cemetery in Linden, New Jersey. Behind him you see Route 1/9 which, following this strip, leads through Elizabeth and Newark. A viewer may seek a narrative in which Jesus laments the commercial industrialism of contemporary America; then again, a viewer may not be so charitable with their sympathies.
