Botany Cemetery is dominated by fresh-air and sunlight. It is open and it is expansive, not in the least maudlin and dark.
As befits the Australian self-concept, I found it to be an egalitarian graveyard. There are maybe half a dozen mausoleum(s), but mostly graves are unpretensious. It goes without saying, therefore, that the statuary is not of a personal nature. It is of this ethereal, heavenly bent. Unlike somewhere like Pere LaChaise which is replete with representations meant to aggrandise the individual.
All four photos were taken on the same day. The deep blue were facing to the south, the grey was facing to the north - towards the city.
