|"I accept my crown!"|

I came across this unusual monument in the cemetery of Saint Andrew's at Chale in the Isle of Wight. The island is a beautiful part of the UK and somewhere to visit although the ferry can be expensive. Chale is a beautiful village and one encapsulates something of the history of the Island and its people.
The crown on a cushion is well designed and produced and in this photo is framed by an atmospheric sky as a front came in from The Solent. The medieval cemetery has a range of monuments through the last two hundred years including a European Prince who was later exhumed and re-buried elsewhere as well as people from the island.
