This life size Guardian Angel (schnitzel) stands upon a large marble marker for the family plot of the Dixon clan.
Actual graves for the Dixon's are actually not feet but yards away from this imposing stone.
The angle with very large wings, is standing with her proper right hand upon the scroll with the name and text, and her proper left hand is down at her side holding what looks like leaves.

Text on the large stone reads:

Faithful to Their Trust
Even Unto Death

"An angel is a purely spiritual being found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks.[3] The term "angel" has also been diversed to various notions of spirits or figures found in many other religious traditions. The theological study of angels is known as "angelology" ~ Wikipedia
