Rusting chrome angel.

It's rusting! Someone needs to start a GoFundMe to restore this stunning work of art.

Worth a stop especially on a pretty day. Other neat things there too. Each section of the Land of Memory Cemetery has a theme.

Chrome Angel.

Chrome Angel Grave

Large, chrome, Art Deco-inspired statue of an angel that looks like an over-sized hood ornament. It appears to be a free-standing, decorative statue in the cemetery rather than an individual's grave marker.

This is my all-time favorite cemetery angel, so far. I found this in Palestine. Palestine, Texas. I used to pass by it 2-3 times a week while traveling between Lufkin and Waxahachie, TX.
