Familia Manuel Cerini, Recoleta Cemetery

I’ve been unable to find out anything about who this family is or what they did, & the plaques on the front don’t help much. The interior is nice—a little barren—but with interesting stained glass:

For me the highlight is the 1926 Art Deco statue on top by Troiano Troiani. It’s slightly out of proportion, but that makes it all the more appealing. Different times of day show different facets of this gigantic guy… definitely one of the most unique sculptures with an hourglass in the cemetery.
