You probably saw the image of this gloomy angel more than once. This is the black angel named Haserot and here is his story.

Most of the angels in the cemetery usually stand with their heads raised and their wings spread, symbolically striving for paradise. However, the wings of the black angel are not straightened and he looks to the ground … to hell.
The Black Angel also has a very grim expression, with cold, strange eyes and empty eyelids. Many people are nervous. Visitors to the cemetery often said that they feel uncomfortable in the immediate vicinity of the statue. They claim that they thought the statue was following them.

Stories behind weeping monuments
Today was in the cemetery, and there on the monument was cut a weeping angel .. Doctor Who
On August 29, 1953, a pregnant woman named Antonietta Januzo, who lived in Syracuse in Sicily, discovered that the plaster statuette of the Virgin with the baby was crying. The news of this miracle spread quickly and led to a surge of mass religious hysteria throughout the island.
Local church authorities, slightly hurt by the publicity that this story received, decided to personally verify her truth. In truth, they simply did not believe the woman’s words. However, when samples of the liquid from the Madonna’s eyes were analyzed, it turned out that they were similar to real human tears. The church immediately recognized the miracle and erected a raca, where pilgrims honor the statuette in our time.
Obvious miracles of this type are so numerous that anyone who would like to describe them could not even place all the facts in one volume. Since inanimate objects can not cry or bleed, it becomes clear that this phenomenon is a supernatural order. Maybe it just means that the Lord proves his existence.
