Male Or Female Angel?

Located at Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis, MO.

I have looked at this photo a million times and I still can't decide if it is male or female.  I am leaning towards male because it has no apparent breast and it's face is very masculine. And look at it's feet they look like Big Foot's feet.  What do you think?
