- Rebecca Caldwell 
 
"Somehow the persistent unity of disparate objects comes to life in Carthedral. This provokes again the sense of myth, as we see the inexplicable mixed with the mundane through some deliberate intent. At the same time, an attack upon unity, as we encounter so many neat totems in science, orderly paradigms in religion, and binary modes in culture". 
 
- Philip Caldwell 
 
"I watched Rebecca build Carthedral from accross the street in another life and it transformed my understanding of what an artist is and how they contribute to society. I am elated and honored to begin a new life with such an amazing artist and share in her contribution to the world."

There are reported incidents of people seeing, feeling and hearing the ghosts of tormented slaves in the LaLaurie home, and there are even reports of the Madame herself being seen there. The docile house servants who entreated the assistance of outsiders when the house was about to burn to the ground are said to often return to their task - running and slamming doors and shouts are heard repeatedly. Nor are the spirits of the restless dead quiet: the reports of moans and weeping outnumber all others, and there are several who have seen the ghostly faces of the dead peering from the upper windows and the chamber of horrors that became the crucible of their miserable lives.
