Inspiration: Sculptures in the Cemetery

Odd thing, but you can find beauty in a cemetery. These pictures were not taken by me, I actually downoladed them from the Net, but I think I will visit one of our cemeteries sometime.
It's marvellous how these sculptures manage to combine death, pain and sorrow with real beauty. These sculptures are from the tombs of a sculptor that he shares with his wife and the tomb of the wife of another great sculptor, both Hungarian.
Though I have never made a sculpture in my life, I tend to be attracted to them. This sunday I'm leaving for art camp. I'll be there for two weeks, and I'll spend a whole week making sculptures or at least being introduced into sculpting.
