When Elizabeth Taylor was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park last Thursday her casket was placed in a very special place, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Elizabeth, 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."

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.

Academy Award winner Taylor joined other celebrities who have been interred in the Great Mausoleum including Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart and Elizabeth's dear friend Michael Jackson.
