The Public Cemetery in Macedon


 During a drive north of the city we visited the small town of Macedon and made a stop, of course, at the public cemetery.

This cemetery has a few notable markers worth reporting on. Like many others, it is divided into sections by religious affiliation to indicate who maintains what part of the grouds.


This reclining nude woman is one of the most unusual markers I've ever seen. It seems especially risque for a marker erected in the 1930's in a church maintained graveyard.


A statue of Mary is not uncommon (there were two in this cemetery) but this one has a "mini-Mary" for twice the effect.


And as a reminder that not all deaths happen to people at the end of a long live, this marker is for a stillborn child.
