    El Beso de la Muerte - The Kiss of Death Statue At The Old Graveyard Of Poblenou In Barcelona, Spain

  • Gina Strojek

    The Kiss of Death ~ Kuriositas 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.

El Beso de la Muerte (The Kiss of Death ) | POBLENOU CEMETERY/ One of the most beautiful cemeteries in Barcelona

'eternal love' grave sculpture. Sorry for all of the morbid posts. I was looking for the embracing skeletons because I thought they were beautiful in their own way, although they are also very sad and depressing. All of these years later, I am thinking about the relationship of that couple. That is the beautiful part. Anyway, this seems to fit in with those photos, so I'm posting it.

Different angle, still creepy. Death is a skeleton with wings. Maybe this IS Mothman!
