Friday's Funerary Art ~ Art Deco Styles


The following monuments are in the Art Deco style, which reached it's peak during the 1930's, with it's geometric streamlined patterns and shapes. This style was applied to almost everything of that era, architecture, transport, furniture, household items and also included fashion and hairstyles.


It's interesting to see the similarity between this building in Los Angeles, and the monument above it from Southend~on~Sea in England.
  


And this monument in Llandudno in Wales, reminds me of the iconic Chrysler building in New York. 


Even though the headstone is a simple one, this Art Deco vase below reflecs the style of those times.
