Lincoln Funeral Car, a 1/24” scale model of the funeral car of Abraham Lincoln, sits on a plinth with the relative dimensions of a gravestone. The car is cast from dirt dug from the site of where the car burned in a 1911 prairie fire, in Columbia Heights, Minnesota. The replica of the car that carried Lincoln’s body from Washington D.C. to Illinois, is resurrected for a body of work called At Rest.
