Photographer's Note

An extract of a sculpture in the cemetary of Schönenwerd, a small village of Solothurn.
I decided to go for a walk there after having heard that the father of a friend died. We were at his funeral a month ago, and (for a born Muslim like me)it was such an impressive funeral that I wanted to visit this (Christian) cemetary again...which I did on April 9.

There were a lot of old, beautiful sculptures, everyone demonstrating the youth: the most beautiful time of life. And near the young girls`/angels` sculptures were all gravestones, remembering the visitor on death and the passing time.

I think the artist who made this scupture tried to unite two totally different things: youth and eternity .
That`s what you can see on this photo: a young (female) hand touching an immortal stone.
I hope you like the scene...
