Original name:  The Pilgrim
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

This statue marks no specific grave. Actually called "The Pilgrim," it was designed by Albin Polasek. The sculpture depicts an old woman, walking toward the Stejskal-Buchal mausoleum in Bohemian National Cemetery, Chicago. The figure's face is shaded by its hood. Tales of local legend through the years have stated that the image actually portrays "Death," and portends that anyone peering under the hood, looking at the face, will die within the year.
