His single vision shakes, motionless but alert, with his hands resting on the hilt of his sword, his face hard delineated only by straight lines and its wings outstretched as if waiting. The Angel of Death or the angel of death, is popularly called as this monumental work of Salamone and that is actually a figure of the Archangel Michael, the guardian of the threshold that guards the border between life and death in the Portal Blue Cemetery.
The place of this cemetery is, like almost everything done by Salamone, gigantic. It measures about 15 feet tall and in his forehead legend includes RIP (Requiescat In Pacem) with huge black letters crowned by a smaller cross the same color. Figures eternal flame can be seen represented symmetrically on the sides of the portal and in the center of the whole scene the Exterminating Angel as custodian of eternal sleep. On the back a huge white cross facing inside the cemetery marks the border between life and death. Under this huge portal is the Blue Cemetery Oratorio also performed by Salamone.
Under the Blue Portal Cemetery there is an Oratory that is where one of many Christs made by Salamone, very similar to the other Christ which is on Route 3 to the entrance of the town. Enclosed is a map showing the location of these two Christs and other works of Salamone in Blue.
