Few things are as beautiful or made to suit cold and grey weather like the runes and designs of the Celts. Always did love the particular asthetic of the Celtic Cross and the Endless Knot.
He holds that cross as though his soul depends on it.
I like the mournful expression on his face. In recent days his expression has been remeniscient of my moods. Wishing for something, hopes and desires unrequited.
Ok, so more photos from my trip to Bellefontaine Cemetery. I have about a week or so’s worth of these, then hopefuly onto more newer stuff.
This angel reminds me of what I would expect to appear before the empty tomb of Christ, proclaiming, "He is not here, He is risen as He said!".
This one was more weathered than most, and the figure has a distinctly medieval look about the face and hair.
A close up of the photo posted on the 13th. My favorite of this figure.
I like the way the trees frame her figure, and the way the stature leans slightly forward. I think it may need cropping a little, to center the image, but I’m not sure.
The colors of Autumn and the soft muted tones of grey colored stone. I like the expression of her face and folds of her robe and the way the weatherd stone adds depth to the piece.
Of all the locations in Saint Louis that I have photographed, the two cemeteries in North Saint Louis are my favorite. In the Fall, few places are more beautiful. The quiet atmousphere and surrounding sculpture is a rare place of beauty and repose.
