Description
One colour digital photograph in JPEG format. Depicted at the centre is a box of crocheted nets with stones inside. A message behind the nets states "It is a Jewish tradition to place a small stone or pebble at the grave of a person who has died. This is a symbolic act to indicate that someone has come to visit and the deceased will not be forgotten. Stones last for eternity like the memory of loved ones. Immediate family members of victims should feel free to take a stone if they so wish".

Researcher comments/remarks
Canterbury Museum commissioned Johannes van Kan to photograph the tributes being placed outside the Al Noor Mosque, Linwood Islamic Centre and Christchurch Botanic Gardens following the 15 March 2019 terrorist attacks. Johannes took photos at the three sites and at the Ashburton Islamic Centre in South Canterbury across several weeks, capturing the growth in numbers of tributes and their eventual clearance by Christchurch City Council staff and volunteers.
