A statue of the Archangel Uriel atop a family tomb in Lafayette Cemetery #1, New Orleans, Louisiana (1833). In his left hand is a torch; Uriel is known as "God's lightbearer".
The broken wing tells the sad tale of an attempted theft (most likely by miscreants hired by Antique Dealers who sell these artifacts at exorbitant prices to collectors) - it was rescued before the thieves got any further. This is the last and only statue remaining in this particular cemetery - one of New Orleans oldest. Perhaps coincidentally, the Family name is HART.
