Aul Monument, St. Peter’s Cemetery (Arlington)

Pity this poor mourner. We have found the identical, or nearly identical, statue in the Mount Lebanon Cemetery and twice in the South Side Cemetery (Baxmyer and Nickel), and she is almost always missing her hands; only once, in the Allegheny Cemetery, has Father Pitt found the statue intact. The wrists were clearly a weak point in the design. Here she presides over a matched pair of graves with a stone outline, evidently sold as a package deal with the statue, since the same grouping occurs in the South Side Cemetery.
