Statues of the Cemeteries of New Orleans

Taken on several different occasions, these photographs highlight the beautiful sculptural work that decorate the last resting places of many former New Orleanians. With a mild climate and an artistic temperment, New Orleans features many more decorative statues decorating the tops of the ever-present private mausoleums than you would typically find in more northern cities.
