Angel Of Grief by PiccolaStellaOscura Angel Of Grief by PiccolaStellaOscura
Angel of Grief is a 1894 sculpture by William Wetmore Story which serves as the grave stone of the artist and his wife at the Protestant Cemetery, Rome.
Pictures of the statue appear on the covers of Evanescence EP by Evanescence, Once by Nightwish, Embossed Dream in Four Acts by Odes Of Ecstasy.


Photo: me.

Questo scatto è per Daniel de Lioncourt, in memoria alla giornata passata insieme a Roma.
Ti voglio bene e mi dispiace quando discutiamo.
Scusa, sono stata un po' brusca prima.
Ma devi fidarti di me. Io mi fido di te.

ufff... associo questa statua a Tarja Turunen, visto che è la copertina del suo ultimo album con i Nightwish, quindi mi mette ancora più tristezza di quella che lo scultore voleva imprimere! sadness sadness ... :(

Il mio amico ed io abbiamo cercato in lungo ed in largo questa statua (e la cosa è letterale nel caso del Cimitero Monumentale XD), ma NIENTE!
