Toussaint day........

Today is a bank holiday here in France. Our village cemetery is awash with flowers that families have left in remembrance of their loved ones past.

When I was in the Venice cemetery I saw this huge huge marble figure that towers above eveything else....

Perhaps the saddest statue I have ever seen.
But it seems a very fitting display for today.

A demain mes belles...

  1. Oh dear, that is so beautifully sad. I agree with you, one of the saddest figures I have ever seen.
    Have a good evening Shirley.

  2. Hi Di
    I wasn`t sure of it was spooky or sad! I wouldn`t like to have come face to face with her in the dark though!!! It was so beautifully done and she is stepping down from a huge family vault. The folds in her robe were so fluid...I wonder who carved it?

  3. I have so enjoyed your pictures what lovely interesting things you have been able to share with us.
    Hugs Lynn xx

  4. Thanks Lynn....I was a bit of a tourist this time in camera was full by the time I got home!!
