    This is a beautiful statue at the cemetary...but her hands are gone.

      Of the "my favorites" set, I like this one the best. I find it well composed, well executed, and evocative. There is the extreme beauty of the carving bringing to mind heaven as it should in a place of rest yet there are the missing hands that combined with the youthful face bring a sense of a life cut short - unable to become all it could have been. The more you look at it the more it speaks to you.

      Well done!

      Thank you so much for your kind words. For whatever reason, this particular angel draws me back again and again. I love how her expression changes from different angles. I'm looking forward to taking more photos of her soon.

      She has such a lovely expressive face, and your photo captures that, as well as the detail in the carving.

      For "This Place I know" group, This is, I assume, Coupeville's cemetary.

      This reminds me of a statue I saw once that was missing one hand, but the sculptor had done it on purpose. It sort of broke up the serenity of the work.

      It seems to work better when it's not intended...
