A pleurant statue in Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris. Pleurant (French) or "weeper" statues represent the eternal grief at the loss of a loved one. I have long been fascinated by the depth and detail that goes into cemetery statuary.
would love to see this. It is the setting for the book and movie, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, a dark, southern gothic novel that is dripping with character and rich settings, not to mention a compelling plot.
