The Weeping Angel of the Amiens cathedral (also known as L’Ange Pleureur) is a sculpture by French sculptor and architect Nicolas Blasset(1600 – 1659). The angel’s right hand rests on an hourglass symbolizing the brevity of life. The left hand sits atop a skull (a symbol of death). The statue of the weeping angel adorns the funerary monument of canon Guilain Lucas who died in 1628.
