Angels in Cimetiére des Carmes, Clermont-Ferrand France

02 November 2014

 1st November is the Day of the Dead, and for the occasion, I went to my favourite local cemetery, to visit the west corner, which I had not yet seen. I discovered two beautiful angels, one in bronze, and another in marble. The light was lovely, as the sun began to set, throwing pink and gold light on the black lava stones.

The second angel is a memorial for a little girl ...

Sadly, this beautiful family crypt has been vandalized (the glass door and metal gate have been damaged, and it's been marked by the cemetery staff as "abandoned". If no one from the family repairs it and repays the lease on the lot, the crypt and monuments will, tragically, be demoished.
