Inspired by… The La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires

NatKalbachBAC01

It might sound weird to have a title that indicates that one was inspired by a cemetery, but if you have ever been to La Recoleta Cemetery, a serene and peaceful, as well as beautiful resting place in the middle of a hustling and bustling city of Buenos Aires, I think you agree with me. I was intrigued by the beauty of the mausoleums, the decay, the symbols, the shapes and forms, the doors, the signs, the light, the flowers at places you would not expect flowers, the texture and more.

Overall all those details and unique resting places showed a deep love and appreciation for those that were lost and that was the most beautiful and inspiring thing about this place. I hope you liked this little- if a bit unusal – stroll through a cemetery.

    Loved this stroll. The woman and the dog are very touching to me.
    I must say that the “snake”-like creature with the “spirit”-person coming out of its mouth is something that I need to look at more and try to figure out.
    As always, thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas Nat!

      Sue, I loved the woman and the dog one too. She apparently got killed in an avalanche while in Switzerland and then when her dog died,he was buried next to her and they put up the statue. As for the snake like creature-I have no idea what the meaning of it is- but I am intrigued. Have a merry christmas too my friend!
