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.

sad and beautiful picture... a much loved motiv, so it seems  :happybounce:  seen it so often
made a drawing of it, too  Floating
always loved angels...

in childhood it was my very first career aspirations... wished to be useful, to protect especially all who are dear to me - and who are dear to them - but then some terrible horrors happened... and if there ever had been wings they had been taken away Waaaah!

please forgive these sad wordsGrr.

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!

E no. Abbiamo anche chiesto al custode, ma lui ci ha detto che al massimo poteva indicarci le tombe dei personaggi famosi -_-

This is my all-time favorite memorial sculpture... oddly, I first saw it in Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, California [link] which has an exact replica.
