Part of my new “Stone Angels” series.
A real change of subject for me.
Inspired by the Dr Who episode called “Blink”, I went looking for stone angels.
People may think it’s a macabre place for a photo-shoot, but I saw it as a way to explore the art associated with rituals.
This one is at Kew Cemetery Vic.
I liked the exquisite detailing of the feathers on the wings.
This statue points west; most of the statues that pointed anywhere, pointed skywards.
There is probably deep significance to all the styles and poses of the statuary in cemeteries, but I suspect we have lost the key to the meanings.
