Cemetary statue by prudentia Cemetary statue by prudentia
I'm kind of in two minds about posting this - it's from the cemetary between Bronte and Clovelly beaches in Sydney, so it's actually a memorial to someone's dead loved one. I didn't check the date or the name, but I remember they were a 'beloved mother.'

It's a really striking statue in real life - when we walked past it I was kind of unnerved. In retrospect though, I rather like it. (Not necessarily the photo though!)

It must be a statue of an angel mother kissing her son goodbye for the last time before she departed and went to heaven. <3

I think I've been to that one, Waverly on a tour of it

its actually a lovely work or art
Sadly the cost of doing things like that these days

These beautiful old cemetery's need to be preserved
cause our current ones just dont have art like that in them.

I sort of know what you mean about taking photos too you are of to minds on it
it seems a bit disrespectful.

Oddly you know we took some at a funeral
(we was asked to) and the people close to the person said later when they looked at them
we are glad you did cause we don't recall much of that day.

So yeah weird I know but after you get over your grief you can look back and have something to make it more real and be able to see the flowers people etc that you didnt pay much attention too.
But yeah still I know most feel its not the done thing.
me included, but I wonder now.

I am glad you posted it thought it a beautiful statue.
(sadly the way vandals are now it may end up its only record of existence)

If you are ever in Sydney, then that cemetary is worth a look. It's seriously full of them!
(That, and large statues of urns, which is a bit weirder).
