Monumental Cemetery, Milan Italy

The Northstar Photography Gallery presents a collection of sensuous, fine art Pere Lachaise Cemetery Photography & Photosphotos & photographs of cemetery and memorial art from around the world. Particular cemeteries include Pere Lachaise Cemetery and Montparnasse Cemeteries in Paris France, Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah Georgia, Monumental Cemetery, in Milan Italy, Steglieno Cemetery in Genova Italy and Novodevichye Cemetery in Moscow Russia. The Northstar Photography Galleries explore the historical role of memorial and cemetery art in man's struggle with mortality, immortality, salvation, death and transcendence. One photography gallery offers poetry and commentary on mortality, salvation and transcendence. Of particular interest is the cemetery photography and accompanying essay on "Sensuality in Memorial and Cemetery Art" that delves into the extraordinary role sensuality and the classic nude figure has played in the art of the cemetery. Commentary on this photography gallery incorporates the thinking of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell and the role of myth and the unconscious in the fascinating symbols and meaning of cemetery and memorial art. The "links Page" is a comprehensive survey of web sites on photography of cemetery, memorial and funerary art.

Saving Graces is an illustrated essay on man's struggle to understand his mortality and search for transcendence using classic photography of the cemetery. Sirens - "Symbols of Transformation" is a compelling essay on the historic role of mermaids and sirens in myth and culture. "Of Flesh & Stone" is a photographic essay that explores the many connections between the sensuous female forms in cemetery art that adorn many of the great cemeteries of the world and the human form that the figures represent. The essay explores the many mythological and biblical references to humans being turned to stone.
