Anheuser Chapel, Bellefontaine Cemetery | A visit to Bellefontaine would not be complete, too, without a glance at the very spooky figure that looks over the David R. Francis Tomb and Family plot. Today the dim light completely hid the face. Was there anything underneath?

Grave Marker

The kiss of death. This astonishing sculpture forms part of Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery. The Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El beso de la muerte in Spanish) dates back to 1930. A winged skeleton bestows a kiss on the lips of a handsome young man: is it ecstasy on his face or resignation? Little wonder the sculpture elicits strong and varying responses from whoever gazes upon it.


sculpture - where is this??
