Attach your favorite image and detail why it is your favorite.
This is a picture of a poster i bought about 10 years ago. I have a fascination with cemetery angels and after seeing the image online in a story, I had to find it. She is an angel in a cemetery in Paris (if i am remembering correctly). I think she is a beautiful piece of art.
