Ott Obelisk, St. John Vianney Parish Cemetery

A magnificently shrouded obelisk. The cross on the side makes it a Christian monument; one rarely sees an obelisk without a cross in a Catholic cemetery. The abundance of drapery makes one feel as though there would be something improper about an unclothed obelisk.
