Cenotaphs from the Whaleman’s Chapel

Reading the fate of the whalemen.

Cenotaphs from the Whaleman’s Chapel is a Twitter bot created by @summerash99 that tweets fictional cenotaphs (empty grave markers) for lost whalers inspired by the Whaleman’s Chapel in Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby-Dick.

“I regarded those marble tablets, and by the murky light of that darkened, doleful day read the fate of the whalemen who had gone before me.”

Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
