    "This statue is a life-sized bronze statue of a seated angel. The official name for the haunting monument that stands over the tomb of Francis Haserot in Cleveland‘s Lakeview Cemetery is The Angel of Death Victorious. More colloquially, however, it’s known as The Weeping Angel due to the black stains that streak eerily down its face, making it look as though the statue itself is crying. Some have even claimed to see the angel move or cry, strange reports that have all the hallmarks of an urban legend.

    Needless to say, the real explanation for The Angel of Death Victorious’s appearance is much more worldly. The statue is cast from bronze, and its surface has been slowly discolored over the years by moisture that collects on its surface and then drips to the ground, as a result of gravity rather than any paranormal activity.

    The Weeping Angel was crafted by Danish-born sculptor Herman N. Matzen, whose striking work can be seen all over the city. Born in 1861, he settled with his family in Detroit, Michigan. After studying in Europe, Matzen returned to the United States, spending his adult life in Cleveland, Ohio."

    A really wonderful sculpture and marble center piece. A work of art, and nothing super-natural about it. Except perhaps the cost to commission it. :)
