THE DESIGN CONCEPT
The Kentucky Memorial for the Unborn is a contemplative, healing and living garden.
The concept is based on a modern interpretation of the historic Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. The native limestone and granite wall emerges from the enfolding landscape and sweeps along a graceful arc forming a subtle enclosure. A biblical passage begins the experience along the wall where names and messages are inscribed.
The dark granite memorial wall transforms into a sweeping native stone wall which forms a womb like enclosure. Within this enclosure a bronze statue of Rachel resides.
