Springtime in Vienna's St. Marx Cemetery

On the outskirts of Vienna's third district, behind tall brick walls, lies old St. Marx Cemetery, burial site, somewhere, of Mozart. Another not-so-famous but very important resident of St. Marx is Joseph Madersperger, inventor of the sewing machine. Springtime, when the lilacs are in bloom, is a lovely time to visit.

I find the weeping statues quite moving.

This one caught my eye because the position of his face and the stains on the urn makes it look as if this angel is crying real tears. On closer inspection, it appears he also forgot to use his antiperspirant....
