Artistic Statuary

Cemeteries have many memorials not only the tombstones, but also the monoliths dedicated to military units or distinguished citizens and the many, many beautiful statues. These statues are often placed in memory of a loved one or perhaps are a bust or a life-size representation of that person. Others are placed in the cemetery just for beauty, especially in the garden cemeteries. There is incredible artwork among the statues, and that is one of the reasons that visiting a cemetery can be a study in art or sculpture.
