The Emery Angel-Cincinnati, Ohio

Initially, the Emery Angel could be viewed at the Christ Church Cathedral. Commissioned in 1898, the monument honoring Sheldon and Albert Thomas Emery was moved from the church to Spring Grove Cemetery. Due to rain and pollution, the angel appears to be crying because of her streaked face. At one point, she held a large clamshell. I do not know if it was taken or damaged.
