Well-defined Angel

This magnificent angel stands on the grave of James Hamilton who died in 1938 aged 32 years. Not to put too fine a point on it [no pun intended], this is the first angel statue I have seen where the breasts are cleared defined and the stance is, perhaps, a little risqué? Has anyone seen a similar angel? Oh, and look at the close-up of the face. The eye and expression is quite striking. Flaybrick Memorial Gardens - Birkenhead.
