"Gracie In The Sky With Snowflakes" Yes we were holding out for you true fans to show you Little Gracie on a snowday where she gets a break from school and tourists. Easily Savannah's most important piece of Savannah made art on public display carved by the master, John Walz and unveiled 1891 to her bereft parents and friends. As I call her, "the people's icon of things eternal in The Church of Savannah." The only denomination requirement is embracing your eternal child spirit and if you're having any trouble, just come by to behold Gracie for its rediscovery. #bonaventurecemetery #shannonscottstoryist #littlegracie #johnwalzsculptor #thepulaskihotel #eternal #spiritual #church #parents #fatherhood #motherhood #family❤️ #child #daughter #snowvannah #winterwonderland #winter #snow #photograph #photography #portrait #art at Savannah, Georgia

"Dreamtime." Reminds that beneath the pretty azaleas and statuary, Bonaventure grounds are filled with children "napping in Heaven." They saw only one Spring bloom or just a few before they made their way back home. #bonaventurecemetery #baby #infantmortality #children #toddler #parents #mommy #daddy #cemetery #monument #gravemarker #johnwalzsculptor at Savannah, Georgia

What sculptor John Walz did to this monument was brilliant. Hiding a headstone with emblems of life to show the usurpation of death. For one we see a Resurrection Palm wrapped around like a loving arm, then bookended by The Curtain of Life draped over to show how the play in this life has ended but a new act in Heaven opening. Between them is The Winged Hourglass ascending which is the Master Mystic symbol of The Freemasons showing a 33rd Degree Mason. Tying all together like theater cord with tassels is what is called The Golden Cord, emblematic of the robe cords of The Apostles. Just powerful if one knows what one is looking at. #bonaventurecemetery #johnwalzsculptor #treeoflife #freemasonry #33rddegreemason #jamesarthurschaffer #shannonspencerscott #shannonscottstoryist #curtainoflife #veiloflife #apostles #wingedhourglass #sculpture #arthistory #savannahga

An angel came upon us...Ah if only there were masters like John Walz still sculpting angels like this one. Odd but he never saw this work in Bonaventure. It was installed some years after his death in 1922. But the world loves it and I praise his virtues graveside daily here. The angel holds heart clenched flowers to show the intense love and grief. Just glorious. #bonaventurecemetery #bonaventurecemeterytours #shannonscottstoryist #angels #art #sculpture #johnwalzsculptor #visitsavannah #savannahga www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com

The only Bonaventure tattoo we've ever seen, here in a picture taken on one of our tours. It depicts "Little Gracie" who died of pneumonia at 6, 1889 and was beloved to the world. When we asked the patron why this tattoo, she said, "she wanted to walk with Gracie everywhere in the world, and Gracie to walk with her." Lovely. #bonaventurecemetery #bonaventurecemeterytours #6thsenseworld #littlegracie #johnwalzsculptor #tattoo #goodfortunetattoo #shannonscottstoryist #visitsavannah www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com

"Stand Alone" There is much solace and reflection to be found in cemeteries and this was a quiet moment today between the rain and a tornado that touched down. It's also proof of Savannah's winter colors. #catholiccemeterysavannah #johnwalzsculptor #shannonscottstoryist #art #graveyards #visitsavannah #cemetery #angels #marble #carving #solace #memory www.shannonscott.com

There was just something about her eyes & being so close to a child's plot. She learned that day that most children her age didn't grow as old in the Victorian world. Her eyes seemed to wear the understanding. #bonaventurecemetery #bonaventurecemeterytours #shannonscottstoryist #johnwalzsculptor #children #photography #art #cemetery #sculpture #babies #infantmortality #victorian #penicilin #visitsavannah #thunderboltga www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com

The Storyist doing his thing. Discussing a baptismal styled font plot for one of the Desbouillion family. Sculpted by John Walz. Pre-1922, before penicillin, child mortality drove the cemetery trade and kept the stone cutters and sculptors in business! #bonaventurecemetery #bonaventurecemeterytours #shannonscottstoryist #visitsavannah #6thsenseworld #victorian #penicilin #infantmortality # #johnwalzsculptor www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com at Bonaventure Cemetery

The Hohenstein monument by sculptor, John Walz. Shannon in foreground. This figurative piece was a devotional monument from a wife to a husband and it's said there is a photo of the wife Mary seated like this in Walz's studio. Walz was Savannah's most treasured sculptor and Bonaventure is like a museum to his work. #bonaventurecemetery #bonaventurecemeterytours #shannonscottstoryist #visitsavannah #johnwalzsculptor #hohenstein www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com at Bonaventure Cemetery

Bonaventure is a library of stories. Every grave a book on the shelf. We might say pre-penicilin, the library's largest section are children's books. This baptismal font styled grave done by sculptor John Walz. They were planted with ivy vines to show the flow of water. Such a hardship to think this mother only bathed her own babe a handful of times. Too young to be then covered in dirt. #bonaventurecemetery #bonaventurecemeterytours #shannonscottstoryist #visitsavannah #johnwalzsculptor #cherub #penicilin #infantmortality #grave #eternalvine www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com

For centuries artists weren't permitted artistic interpretation of the cross. It was sacrosanct. The Victorian sculptors created a stir when they began to adorn them with Resurrection Lillys and other flowers. They were "modern" artists in that sense, pushing boundaries of meaning and existence. Some protested wildly, but we think they won over the world in the end. #bonaventurecemetery #visitsavannah #bonaventurecemeterytours #johnwalzsculptor #resurrectionlilly #bonaventure_is_for_lovers #shannonscottstoryist www.bonaventurecemeterytours.com
