São Vicente de Fora

From Wikipedia:
The Church or Monastery of São Vicente de Fora; meaning "Monastery of St. Vincent Outside the Walls" is a 17th century church and monastery in the city of Lisbon, in Portugal. It is one of the most important mannerist buildings in the country and also the burial site of most Portuguese Kings of the House of Braganza.

This is the life-sized mourning statue standing by the tombs of King Carlos I and his heir, Prince Luís Filipe, who were assassinated in Lisbon in 1908 by radical Republicans. I thought it was a beautiful statue...and translated it into one of my paintings as well: http://www.fotocommunity.com/pc/pc/extra/egallery/pcat/558074/display/11500595

    Wonderful image. Like your composition very much! (I was disappointed that I couldn't squeeze in a visit to this church when we were in Lisbon in June.)

    Sehr aussagekräftig. Ich war noch nie in Lissabon, aber es scheint sich zu lohnen. Das Land, die Menschen, die Geschichte... ein weiteres Ziel. Lieben Gruß aus Köln, Thom
