Siebert Monument, Birmingham Cemetery

By far the grandest monument in the cemetery, this one is surmounted by a figure pointing upward, like the traditional representations of Hope, except that there is no anchor. Instead, she holds a stem of lilies. Whatever she represents, she is a fine piece of sculpture, all the more surprising for being the only notable piece of sculpture in the whole cemetery.
