Bearded Heads on High

Didn't I see these guys on a box of coughdrops once? I forgot to make a note of whose grave this is (in Louisville's Cave Hill Cemetery), but these sculptural busts certainly made a big impression on me.

They're also the sort of thing that you would probably miss if you blinked while walking by: Though you can't tell from the photo, these guys are way high up at the very top of a tall towering gravestone. You can't even really get a good look at them without taking a zoom-in photo as I have done here.
