• Name: Wreath
  • Caption: To the strains of Sondheim’s Send in the Clowns* on the church organ, a clown solemnly carries the Grimaldi memorial wreath.

    This wreath commemorates both Grimaldi himself and any clowns known to have died that year.

    * a song which isn’t actually about clowns at all, but which has an association impossible to break thanks to that Simpsons episode where Krusty the Clown has his comeback show.
