Appropriate for today. 'All Soul's Day in the Cemetery' by Ludwig Friedrich Wilhelm Riefstahl [img]http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k216/ruthbale/WCRJG00Z.jpg[/img]

Beautiful! in a way it reminds me of this picture. A bit more modern but the same feeling

Me too, it's very pretty. :)

I noticed that a lot of the black veils look translucent? Is this artistic license or did veils used to be made of some funny material?

Yes, many orders had translucent veils, but I don't know the name of the facric - maybe tulle? (I've heard my mother talk about it as a fabric for bridal veils?)
