Located at Barcelona's Poblenou Cemetery, this magnificent sculpture, titled Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El Beso de la Muerte in Spanish), depicts death (in the form of a winged skeleton) planting a kiss on a young man's forehead. The epitaph bears famous verses by one of Catalan's greatest poets, Jacint Verdaguer: “And his young heart can not help; in his veins the blood stops and freezes, And encouragement lost faith embraces, Fall feeling the kiss of death.”
/ for the angel of death spread his wings on the blast/ and breathed in the face of the foe as he passed/ and the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill/ and their hearts but once heaved and forever grew still /
Hello! This is Haenuli, I am a fashion designer who owns a small brand and also an artist. My biggest hobby is drawing and doing creative stuff, but I didn't expect so many support with some of my drawings! Hope you like my drawings. When I visited the Paris Orsay museum, I saw many paintings but one old painting by Marianne Stoke (Young girl and the angel of death), that was Death-like; stood out to me.
