The Kiss of Death Statue at the Old Graveyard of Poblenou in Barcelona.
A winged skeleton, death, kisses the forehead of a young man collapsed. By 1930 Llaudet family lost a son in his youth and wanted to make a sculpture for his tomb, which represent the following verses of the epitaph Cinto Verdaguer: "And his young heart can not help;
in his veins the blood stops and freezes
and encouragement lost faith embraces
fall feeling the kiss of death"
This is a look out area at the local grave yard. Whether you believe in the after life or not.. I see difficulty in denying that there is something beautiful in allowing your loved ones such a tranquil place to embrace the memory of their lost loves one. This is one of the most peaceful places I've ever been, regardless of whether the dead know it or not. There is beauty in death.. and the life that remains. #graveyard#death#afterlife#mountains
