I was thinking those Norse warriors out front of the Valhalla Cemetery mausoleum weren’t there before when I visited in 2011!

Does anyone know if these are original, and therefore probably being conserved offsite the last time I visited, or if they are new?

    The chapel’s own website photo of the building does not show the statues.
    The Google satellite view does not show them at 38.691499, -90.319454, nor does Bing Birdseye.
    There is also a Valhalla cemetery over in Belleville, but there is no connection.
    The statues appear to have some “patina;” do they really look old?
