Thibodaux, Louisiana

Crux Immissae:  Simple crosses of the same size and proportions give an egalitarian aura to this Roman Catholic cemetery. Even the above-ground mausoleums have crosses that are no bigger than those on the burial plots. Every cross on this landscape is elevated as if it is standing atop Mount Calvary, the place where Jesus was crucified. Just think how unlikely it is that the cross, a symbol of death, has come to symbolize a religion that promises eternal life. St. Joseph Cemetery. [2009]
