Stone angel

Easter Sunday.

I've seen such stone angels in books only, until I saw two on old Irish graves at Burrawang, in the Catholic church graveyard yesterday.

I do like this sort of primitive angel that seems as though it would be at home in the Book of Kells or somewhere like Glendalough in Ireland.

It's an image I plan to try translating to cloth, in some way, shape or form.

More images from the cemetery (including another stone angel) here.
