Magnificent Sculpture: Kiss of Death

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.”
