POTD - Weathered Cross


POTD - Weathered Cross

There were so many interesting headstones and statues in the Elberta, AL cemetery that I can't help but feature another piece from there.  What got me was how many of these were painted.  I found that to be incredibly interesting.  I'd venture a guess that everything pre 1940 was painted white at one time. 

Enjoy!

This makes me think of that old gospel song "The Old Rugged Cross"....

Love the texture of the stone under the paint. Those air ferns too!
