Another thoroughly creepy statue, this one over the 1927 grave of David R. Francis, a former U.S. Secretary of the Interior, in Bellefontaine Cemetery.

The dead flower in the statue's lap adds greatly to the ghoulishness. I would not want to be walking this cemetery at night – and you can't as they lock the gates at 5 p.m.

Just as well, perhaps.

Taken on Sunday, a very unseasonably warm 73 degrees F in St. Louis.
