I found this beautiful statue in a small cemetery in front of The Basilica di San Miniato a Monte high on hill looking over Florence.
Beneath the children at the base of the statue is a carved portrait of Silvia in her later years. It's above an inscription that reads: "Mamma, Mamma Mia".
These photos were inspired by Owen at the blog called Magic Lantern Show. It's obvious that he loves cemeteries because he photographs them with passion. I know because I was lucky enough to spend a day with him in Père-
Anyway do search for cemetery at his blog and you'll see what I mean. :) Magic Lantern Show
