Location: Vienna, central cemetery Those disguised ladies were really impressive. Interesting style, never seen such grave statues before.

Almost hated to put this in "Grave Beauty" but I guess it is beautiful to some.  Angel of Death used to be depicted this way...later it became more common to be a kind  angel helping with the transition to death.   Some say this scary depiction served to keep living people on the straight and narrow!  (Cemetery de  Montjuic in Barcelona)

Zentralfriedhof

Zentralfriedhof statue in Vienna - It blows my mind that this is a piece of stone and it still looks like a veil covering a face. Many years ago it was something of a test of skill for a sculptor to create a veiled face. This is one of the absolute best.

SUPERKINTARO

"Transi de René de Chalon," Ligier Richier, I know some may find this gruesome, and it is, but there's images of Jesus nailed to a cross & no one blinks an eye. Transi de René de Chalon is an "example of how transient earthly glory is.
