Canonical in the history of materials, marble is a complex medium. It connotes complicated ideas of quality, value, and memorial and therefore somehow sanctions cultural memory. "Marble" contributes to a dialogue that is evermore common. It speaks to gaining jobs with industrialization, losing jobs with deindustrialization, globalization of a market, permanent structural changes to a landscape, and the use of a limited resource.
