Lake View Cemetery: The Haserot Angel
It’s called the Angel of Death Victorious. Due to an effect of weathering and erosion on the bronze, the statue appears to be weeping black tears at all times.

This sculpture by Issac Cordal in Berlin is called “Politicians discussing global warming.”
I AM ICE. I AM DEATH.
Do Andy Goldsworthy’s beautiful ice and snow sculptures give you chills?
So much respect for his work. Trying to recreate any of this is enough to make you mad.
Arte sobre arte….
I still can’t get over the fact this is a sculpture on the floor and not a car submerged in milk
Made out of recycled car parts. So badass.
This is possibly the coolest thing I have ever seen.
so they put up these new signs at the ima and they make the whole thing feel very alice in wonderland kind of
but the ones with words on them are really great
Sometimes a chipmunk.
So thrilled this has 32,000 notes! This work was curated by my wife, Sarah, and created by the wonderful artist Kim Beck.
No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
