This is probably an unexpected post. When people think about cemeteries they usually associate it with ugly, dark, scary things. But not today. There's beauty in cemeteries and it only takes us a little effort to find it.

Statues are probably the most beautiful element in any cemetery. Of course that we can easily find awful ones, but there's so much beauty to be seen that it's simply incredible these won't get more attention. I really wish it was easier to find out who the artists behind these exquisite pieces of art are. It pretty much makes art galleries out of cemeteries. I hope you enjoy my selection, and if you got your own pictures of beautiful statues, attach it to your comment. Cheers! ;)
