Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah Georgia: Part FOUR
Continuing on with the fabulous architectured headstones
Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.
The statues and headstones were simply amazing.
Look at the shape of this little mausoleum....like a pyramid or Silo!:
I fell in love with this headstone. According to the history of the headstone, the woman who died had a lifesized statue made of her by her family for her headstone...three-dimensional. It as just amazing:
The detail was atonishing!:
It was so beautiful:
Look at the detail of her hair and the view from behind her.
She has been sitting on her headstone for a long time, looking out at the beautiful views
of this gorgeous cemetery:
Sunlight on her face.
I wondered if the family strategically placed her statue in that position?:
She was a beautiful woman in life and remains so in death with this statue:
Here is another one where the deceased has a statue of her likeness made and put
on her headstone. Look how sad she looks!:
It was more like an art museum than a cemetery. I wished I had more time there:
I am almost done with my series on Bonaventure Cemetery.
I hope you haven't found them too inappropriate, but I truly think
they are gorgeous headstones full of history and art.
