Back to White Chapel Cemetery – beginning with the chapel itself, constructed in 1929.
Buried and entombed here are famous folks such as John DeLorean and the incomparable Albert Kahn.
Above the door is the Egyptian Art Deco bas relief by female sculptor (rare for that era or any for that matter) Hester Bremer
The hunting lion is my favorite section of the bas relief
The architectural treatments are understated, and could easily be missed at first glance
The corner angels are stunning
The “Window of Destiny” – From the White Chapel website: “symbolic of the eternal mystery of human life. The three center panels show the Three Fates—Clothe, who spun the thread of life; Lachesis, who took the strand and fixed its length; and Atropos, who cut it with her shears. Around these central figures are the Zodiac signs.”
Inside ? Not too shabby.
One more set tomorrow and we leave White Chapel.
