We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

This beautiful sculpture is called “Asleep” and was created by artist Peter Shipperheyn for the grave site of his friend Laurence Matheson. The sculpture was done upon request of Mr. Matheson’s widow, as a symbol of her undying love for her late husband. (sangbleu.com)

Mount Macedon Cemetery, Vic, Aus.
A lovely tranquil rural cemetery.

So moving.
I love how the hill behind echoes her curves.
