i dunno what is it about sculptures that you can see in cemeteries and tombstones... they look so mysterious and much more interesting.

I guess they are there to represent the hopes of the people buried below. I don't know why but they are seldom or not used here now. Our cemeteries used to be filled with statues and then suddenly nobody uses them anymore. I am guessing they just cost too much to buy.

Nice post today. Also enjoyed your post yesterday. Nice work you do.

I think it has somthing to with
the beliefs and practices of the people who are burying their dead.
Now a days a simple cross or a marker would suffice. There is even a coice for cremation.
During the time of the pharaohs and
chinese emperors these burial
practices were more complex and elaborate.

@oldmanlincoln - i guess you were right, and i also noticed that these statues are old, most tombs just have plain cross nowadays. and thank you so much, it means a lot coming from you

@art - very true, thanks for visiting =)
