Praying eternally....

...with a bunch of fake flowers between his arms.... i found this quite an odd stone. on the other side the names are engraved. unfortunately, i could find nothing interesting about them.
this is at a cemetery not too far from our house, with mostly italian graves (or so it seems, judging from the names, this one was no exception).
for more taphophiles, go here!

Oh my, I almost posted a very similar gravestone also with fake flowers, although it was smaller and on top of another stone with the name Palmieri. It was in a Catholic cemetery in a section where every stone had a Jesus sculpture.

Italians have a dramatic feeling for grave monuments. I have seen a lot of them last summer.
