I like stone sculpture, in particular angels in grave yards and near churches. The photo on the left was taken near the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George in Coptic Cairo and the one on the right was taken this past weekend when Eric and I wandered around St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Old Town Alexandria (Virginia) on our way to the hardware store.

I love them too! and did a photography assignment on graveyard art at college.
I can read the sign in the background of the Egyptian picture, apart from the name of the church it says 'Bookshop'. Just showing off Leslie ;-)

Very nice image. I admit, though, that when I see them I think of that Dr. Who episode with the stone angels. Creepy.

I love graveyard statues. I also did some photography of graveyards in college!
