Montparnasse Cemetery – Paris
Spend a few hours today relaxing, in one of my favorite spaces

Do not worry, this is not a grave photo safari!


Tour Montparnasse.


Ohhh yes – and a vitage architect in Paris!

Hope the pictures can open some eyes, my eyes were all open,_

Yes, and if none are of wood, where does Paris hide all the statues carved from wood? Mads, you need to get those feet moving to find them in that incredibly beautiful city!

maybe to steer you in the right direction… try the Zadkine Museum

Nice pics… wish I were there now, with this wonderful weather.

Best regards…

I have traveled quite a bit in Europe and the far east. However, strangely, I have not been to France yet. It’s time to change that.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi every one,
I’m happy the pictures brought some memories back, and some travels in mind – that was what I hoped for.
Jamie, it’s the water spots in Paris, where you can go and drink a little water if you need. I love this idea, and that it’s four beautiful woman dancing around you as you drink, dont make it less interesting.
The hat, I take it of for you!

My favorite is the guy with his hands over his face- anguish or shame? No offense but I really hate the dead Jesus one. That always grosses me out. This was a nice sampling of cemetary art. :) Thanks Mads!

Rivergirl, yes he is really scary, it was why I brought him along, as a contrast. He was so cold and suffering on that cold stone, and with the hole in his chest. I still have a hard time to understand why we want to remember him like that! I would love to see a warm hearted man sitting at a table with others telling storys – but the church want’s us to remember only the suffering part – why? I know people who suffered a lot, but I always remember them for the god, perhaps I’m just a hopless optimist…
Terri, It sounds so beautiful.
