Golden angel

One of the best preserved figures in the crypt gallery (Gruftenweg) at the main cemetery in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. This figure is in a private niche behind locked iron gates, which perhaps explains why it is undamaged - I had to carefully pass my camera through the bars of the gate in oder to take this shot. The figure dates from 1902.
