Staglieno Cemetery in Genoa, Italy with a statue upon the grave of Italino Iacomelli; who died 16 August 1925 five years of age. The victim of a killer, while he played in the public garden with a hoop.
The Rust & Weathering,makes this statue so much more acceptable for the garden & dilutes any "Twee". Do not try to scrub clean any of the aged patina from statues or Garden urns like a sweet friend did for me when I was away.
I shot this little guy while waiting for Kirsten to pack our lunch. We have some business in Portland then we're eating lunch at Portland Head Light. This cherub is in a bird bath in our yard. I especially like the reflection.
