This is the second part post about the Pere Lachaise Cemetery. If you have missed Part I, you can check it HERE. We hope you continue to indulge this visual tour through this beautiful City of The Dead.
In 2016 we have been in Paris for IAM Masterclasses, 3 days of CG Art (computer graphics) workshops (Isis is a professional digital art illustrator and Ove enjoyed the opportunity for a trip). We stayed a few extra days and of course, we had to visit Pere Lachaise cemetery. We brought a DSLR and a compact camera and with them we captured many of the beautiful, astounding sculptures and pantheons at one of the most beautiful cemeteries we have ever visited.
When on a short early Autumn trip hunting for Stave Churches here in Norway, we discovered some enchanting small details present on a few cemeteries. These are very small (enough to fit on the palm of your hand) angel statues adorning a few modern graves. In other words, you won’t find them everywhere – at least, that’s how it was back in August this year.
These little fellas are very alluring, evoking good feelings when we come closer to observe them. Their expressions and pose are quite vivid. Perhaps they come to life on Halloween nights? They are literally the children of the graves.
