Forest Lawn – Glendale: The Adoration of the Shepherds Sarcophagus Memorial

As you unlock the gates to the Garden of Honor and enter this exlusive development, you will immediately notice El Greco’s impressive mosaic, The Adoration of the Shepherds, on the opposite perimeter wall. The brightly hued mosaic beautifully depicts the scene following the birth of the infant Christ. Located directly below the mosaic are an impressive eight-capacity magnificent white marble sarcophagus and two marble vases. All three elements are placed prominently upon a granite base, enhancing the stateliness and grandeur of the property. Lovely views of the skyline surround this dramatic family memorial.
