It should be remembered that the expense of portraits prior to photography was part of the Quaker objection...the indulgence of spending a large sum for a vain or shallow reason. Quakers take issue with any "display" be it a grave maker, personal image or anything that comes close to the "me" generation of today putting self before anything.
