Paintings at the entrance of the cemetery in Sexten 3/3


Nicht so traurig, junges Blut
heimwärts zieht man frohgemut


Not so sad, young blood
homeward you should go cheerfully

Holde Maid im Myrtenkranz,
Folge mir zum Hochzeitstanz


Damsel in myrtle wreath,
Follow me to the wedding dance

I still see this as strange, but it is also fascinating!

I dunno, Karl. These are rather weird and somewhat scary! A "death becomes you" kind of thing! :)

They are a little sad.

I love the painter's sense of humor. I could go for something like that if I decided to go with a tombstone.
