Monumental Cemetery of Bonaria, Italy...Cemetery with many huge and expensive monuments among cypress trees. This one is the wife of a wealthy man; made of several monuments...this is her son mourning her and covering her with blanket. It is astounding.

I find cemetery monuments oddly beautiful. Evoking the passage and finality of time all at once.
