A simple and austere Doric mausoleum whose austerity is mitigated by a fine cross-and-palms bronze door and the fairly unusual warm honey color of the stone
A somewhat unusual shape for a classical mausoleum. The bronze door is striking, with an Art Nouveau arrangement of cross and palms.
A Doric mausoleum with a wreath in the pediment. The rusticated stone gives the structure, which bears the date 1906, a richness of texture that contrasts well with its simplified Doric entablature.
An unusual classical monument: a pediment with two columns flanked by curved benches. The effect is something like a gateway, with the repaired cross behind representing the destination.
A mausoleum for priests who have gone home. The style is interesting: the overall shape is very much Egyptian, but there are no pagan Egyptian details, and the rusticated stone and Celtic-style uncial inscription are quasi-medieval.
A tall obelisk with the oblique cross that often Christianizes obelisks in Catholic cemeteries.
It is rare to find a classical mausoleum with explicitly Christian symbols—except in Catholic cemeteries, where it is very much the norm. This fine little Doric temple bears a cross on the top, broadcasting the unambiguous message, “Tasteful but not pagan.”
