Mono Monday Angel Statues in the cemetery

Mono Monday Angel Statues in the cemetery

Another week begins, well for most being retired, the weeks roll together and Monday isn't a day I have to get motivated and head to work, but as I have the habit of doing I am starting the week with a Mono post.

Today I am sharing some mono images from walks in a couple of the Cemeteries here in New Bedford, St Marys and the Rural Cemetery.

Starting with this Angel in Saint Marys Cemetery, which I have featured in a Wednesday walk post a beautiful older cemetery with any interesting headstones and a beautifully maintained cemetery, and has a Lot of Irish descendants buried there

Still in Saint Mary's and another angel, sadly this one, one of the angel wings is damaged and you may noticed the rosary beads hanging around her neck, I did notice that on quite a few of the angel style headstone sin this cemetery

A closer in shot of the same statue, I took this one to both show the detail of the angel, but also to show the rosary beads closer and mention them, which I have already done

I guess this one would be called a Cherub or Cherabim, and if you haven't come across that word let me explain

The cherubim are a group of angels recognized in both Judaism and Christianity. it is said that Cherubs guard God's glory both on Earth and by his throne in heaven, which is a nice thought.
they are also said to work on the universe's records, that's something new I learnt today, record keeping a task I was never fond of during my career but I guess something that has to be done, even in Heaven.

And help people grow spiritually by delivering God's mercy to them and motivating them to pursue more holiness in their lives

Now we are in the Rural Cemetery, which is another large cemetery here in new Bedford, it does have some older headstones but also some that look more recent such as this headstone

Happy mono Monday. I like the more modern angels in the last two shots. Very different look than the classic ones.

I was wondering if you're a Christian?

What happened to its wings why it was damaged? Anyway, the emotions are there.

Well how do I answer that I was brought up a catholic, but I dont go to church all the time, I do believe in a higher being, but not necessarily in a particular faith
I did wonder how the wing was damaged

I am a lover of the older angels and statues. The new ones don't have that same warm feeling, although I know that sounds weird. It is an angel, right? Actually, the newer ones are nice, but, they don't make the old ones anymore and I just feel like death was more dignified, or held in a different light long ago. People were revered, which I know I have said before. Perhaps that is what makes me lean toward that way.

I did like the first angel, and I have to tell you when I looked at it the first time, I thought it said HELLO! Not Mello... I was wondering what kind of message that was trying to send me. LOL

The mono is such a perfect way to pick up the tone of the cemetery, with subtle shades of peace.

Thanks for sharing your shots with us!

I am the same, and for me the older ones have more style and dare I say class, I do feel the older ones are more Solemn, and not in a dark way if that makes sense, but are as you say more dignified and respectful to those who have passed

LOL at Hello not Mello :)

The last one to me looked more like an Elve than a Angel to be honest

Yes!!!!! It looked exactly like an elf!! I have to wonder if it was supposed to be? I hope not, that would be pretty weird, and yet. It really does.

Maybe an elf has some special significance to the person buried there, but I guess we will never know
