The origin of The Kiss of Death statue:
The Kiss of Death statue (El Beso de la Muerte) stands on the Poblano cemetery in Barcelona. A dead angel kisses a young man’s forehead, hiding in the farthest corner of the cemetery as if afraid of being spied. The epitaph on the tomb of The Kiss of Death statue is a verse from the great poet and priest 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.”
“His young heart went out like this. The blood in his veins began to get cold. All the power disappeared. Faith was praised for falling into the embrace of death.” (Many different translations, I chose this because I like it. The phrase “Faith is praised for falling into the embrace of death”)

The strange charm of The Kiss of Death statue:
The Kiss of Death statue was created by an unknown sculptor. In 1930, the Llaudet family mourned the death of their son. Soon after the funeral, his tombstone was decorated with this original tombstone. The creator of this dark masterpiece is still unknown, which makes it more mysterious and mysterious. This work is often considered to be created by Jaume Barba, but some people believe that it was created by Joan Fontbernat. No textual research, leave it alone. This The Kiss of Death statue is both weird and full of the charm-the angel of death is depicted as a winged skeleton. The young man looks like he welcomes death as his companion, blending decay and romance. It instills fear and awe in those who see it, as well as infinite questions about eternity. It is said that this The Kiss of Death statue inspired Ingmar Bergman’s film Det Sjunde Inseglet (Det Sjunde Inseglet) which was released in Sweden on February 16, 1957. It depicts a game of life and death between the idealistic knight Bullock and the black death god in the late period of the 14th century Crusade. This work is full of strong religious colors and is of a good level.
