Two Angel Sentinels

Here's a gravestone that caught my interest at Manchester's Weaste Cemetery. It stands over the grave of Thomas Mosgrop and his family. Not only does it have an excellent mourning figure clinging to a broken column, but also a finely crafted Angel on each side of the stone. Beautiful!

I find it amazing it has survived so long in such good condition. A work of art

Beautiful yet creepy

The angels are amazingly intact for basically being free-standing. Thanks for sharing this beautiful stone.
