Description

Jim Morrison GRAVESTONE Rubbing by the late Artist Susanna Griffie 
There is quite a story behind this unique sketch, although the artist who made it called a “rubbing”. In the summer of 2005, Susanna made her way to Paris, France with the intention to get a gist for her boyfriend at the time. It was to be a rubbing of the headstone of legendary rock star Jim Morrison. The grave is located in Pere Lachaise Cemetery where some incredible historical figures are also buried. Susanna risked her freedom by daringly climbing into the gravesite to make this rubbing. French police arrested her and threatened her with a long jail sentence for “stealing French culture”. After a short time in custody, she was able to convince French authorities that her motives were driven by “ je time” or “ I love you” in English. She managed to make a total of 4 of the rubbings before she was arrested. Quite a tale. Susanna passed away on February 14th, 2018 in Arizona. This rubbing is similar to the one presented to Guantanamo Bay Base Commander Captain Mark Leary in March of 2007. To read her own words, click on the link below. Also, see attached photo’s of the event and presentation in Cuba that year.
