Two Figures: Mount Elliott Cemetery--Detroit MI

Mount Elliott was established in 1841 to serve the needs of the city's Catholic community. It is part of the Eastside Historic Cemetery District. Unlike Woodlawn Cemetery, located further out on Woodward Avenue, Mount Elliott seems to have fewer classical temple memorials and more that feature human figures. While I cannot say definitively that this memorial represents Jesus and Mary, it does evoke Michelangelo's Pieta.
