Washington: Late Dame Elizabeth Taylor’s casket was laid to rest in a very special place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Taylor, 79, who died last Wednesday of congestive heart failure, was interred in a crypt adjacent to a 10 foot tall statue of a white-marbled angel that the Art Guide of Forest Lawn refers to as the " Angel of Memory," reports RadarOnline.com.

The breathtaking statue stands within the Great Mausoleum``s Memorial Terrace in the Hall of Memory against a darker-marbled background.

It was created 70 years ago by Italian sculptor Ermenegildo Luppi out of imported marble.
