|Angel @ Bonaventure|
And interesting at that.
This is one of the many striking sculptures in the Bonaventure Cemetery.
An Angel with now broken wings and missing fingers. She stands next to this slab with the name on it.
Marie Barclay Taliaferro, who died in 1893. She was only 35 years old.
It is a shame people have come in and destroyed part of this art.
I think (correct me anyone if I am wrong) that the sculptor was a local man, John Walz.
He is known for the one next to this Angel, Gracie Watson. She was a little girl...I have photos and will get to them. Her life-like sculpture is now behind gates...
John Walz is also buried here. Ironically with no marker.
There is an organization working to change this...
The history is everywhere in this beautiful place.
