Although many are unfamiliar, the Gullah Geechee culture fingerprint exists in Bonaventure through ritual sites involving love, money and fertility spells. I was flattered to be quoted in an article discussing aspects of their lives. www.bustedhalo.com/features/in-the-land-of-god-and-gullah #gullahgeechee #rootdoctor #angola #africa #african #face #facepainting #magical #lowcountry #Beaufort #sainthelena #beaufortcounty #daufuskie #sapelo #dayclean #daycleanjourneys #bustedhalo #shannonscottstoryist #shannonspencerscott #shannonscott #anthonychiroazzi at Savannah, Georgia

Love's Thawing. Poet Conrad Aiken, his wife and painter, Mary Hoover Augusta sat here many a day sipping martinis and in their will instructed that their grave should be a bench so others could partake. Later antique dealer and preservationist, Jim Williams and his ill fated lover, Danny Hansford met here on their first date. Its far too easy to assume a headstone is but a headstone. Far from it at least in Bonaventure. #bonaventurecemetery #shannonscottstoryist #conradaiken #maryhooveraiken #jimwilliams #dannyhansford #midnightinthegardenofgoodandevil #frozen #rose at Savannah, Georgia

"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

Easily Bonaventure's most haunting beauty, "Corinne." Like the maiden of the bluff, with Christ statue over watching, she never fails to capture the imagination with her searching eyes and mouth frozen in midst of some expression intended for some friend long ago. Her pain, everyone's. Her passion, the world's. Her legend, infamous. #bonaventurecemetery #shannonscottstoryist #corinnelawton #photography #winter #snowvannah #snow #civilettibendetto #palermo #marble #sculptor #love #romance #legends #haunted #ghost at Savannah, Georgia

One of Bonaventure's most mysterious plots is that of Wymberley Jones DeRenne. He looks up from a lecture podium, with 2 Sphinx bookends and a 45ft obelisk looms perfectly behind him in a seemingly unrelated plot. Or is it? Nothing accidental with the Freemasons and much more to see here than meets the immediate glance. And if you're really looking, note The Sphinx on the Left. This just happened and naturally there's a story... #bonaventurecemetery #wymberlyjonesderenne #wormsloe #freemasonry #secretsocieties #masonic #33rddegreemason #solomonstemple #shannonspencerscott #shannonscottstoryist at Savannah, Georgia

For fans of Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil, you know about martini hour in the cemetery and the two most famous "barflies" were poet Conrad Aiken and his wife, famed painter, Mary Hoover Augusta. I recently acquired this painting by her that I've entitled, "The Swarming Nuns of NYC." Just going to show our tour isn't all about men, but women too and Mary was kick ass! #bonaventurecemetery #maryhooveraugusta #maryhooveraiken #conradaiken #nyc #greenwichvillage #sunsets #fullmoon #nuns #catholic #paintings #finearts #cubany #spain🇪🇸 #martinis #midnightinthegardenofgoodandevil #shannonscottstoryist #shannonspencerscott at Savannah, Georgia

How wonderful that her gaze directed at her hero in uniform. Surely like Chaplin, he took the curb when they walked side by side so that she might be safe on the inside? Worked late at the base so she could wholly be mother? Offered his coat in the Fall chill or pulled her chair out when they dined? "Yes," this stone tells us. All that and more. True lovers depicted in their prime when all of life seems forever but is not. Yet the energy of their union was and thus only fitting to be celebrated in such memoriam. #bonaventurecemetery #love #marriage #eternal #couple #manandwife #CeramicMemorialPlaque #photography #portrait #military #soldier #shannonscottstoryist at Savannah, Georgia

Because people have asked, and the controversy has passed, Im posting Michael Grafton's pic of my pal, Buddy The Fox. He started following my tour couple of years ago and I named him, Buddy. He would appear like magic and sit with us like a dog, eat from my hand all to the delight of tourists. In one week he made Sav Morning News twice and South Magazine. He's also permanently featured on The Bonaventure Illustrated Map but hidden like Waldo! I loved this little creature but so much naysaying led to me putting a lid on his whereabouts and activities. He has a family now to think of and I think has moved on but for awhile made Bonaventure even more magical. #buddythefox #michaelgraftonphotography #bonaventurecemetery #fox #wildlife #nationalgeographic #southmagazine #savannahmorningnews #thebonaventureillustratedmap #shannonscottstoryist at Savannah Historic District

Antique copper handle that came up in a recent new burial dig. My guess from a marble sarcophagus underground that held a casket and probably that of a child due to small nature of the handle. A backhoe clipped it in the dig. With so many records lost, there's lot of guessing when it comes to digging a new grave in an old plot and all sorts of things turn up including guns, money and other things that prove people try to take it with them! #bonaventurecemetery #casket #coffin #copper #patina #sarcophagus #burial #funeral #cemetery #shannonspencerscott #shannonscottstoryist at Savannah, Georgia

Every child is an innocent and a carved lamb here to remind us that every child is Christ like and tenderly loved. Although inescapable is the sacirificial suggestion too and may have been some comfort that God had taken them home for some divine purpose. This Lamb of God once had very distinguished ears but broke away and now look like strange eyes. These are fairly synonymous with old graves of children for wherever the lamb reposes, our Lord the Shepherd is near. As these carved lambs wear, they are often mistaken for dogs which isn't a bad thing obviously. #bethanycemetery #charlestonsc #god #christ #lambofgod #christianity #heaven #biblical #sacrifice #lamb #sheep #babies #infant #children #parents #shannonspencerscott #shannonscottstoryist at Bethany Cemetery

Yes, if you ever wake and find this child by your bedside you may want to run. Even so like a child presenting a paper with a good grade or a drawing to a sure to be proud parent, this child is showing all who passes by, that their name is written in the heavenly register and church one as a baptised child. Few things struck horror faster than a child who'd died unbaptized so this was assurance to neighbors, friends and family. #charlestonsc #bethanycemetery #heaven #god #infant #children #death #prepenicillin #angel #cherub #cemetery #parents #mother #father #shannonspencerscott #shannonscottstoryist at Bethany Cemetery

Like some grave of The Gods or Royalty, we see this faux sarcophagus set up higher than the viewer both commanding worship and showing Heavenly elevation altar style, I simply love the bronze quality of the mold and yes, sizeable knockers (Young Frankenstein anyone?)as if only the hands of God or angels could even lift them or some great ship is now untied and going towards a celestial port. #magnoliacemeterycharleston #sarcophagus #tomb #altar #grave #gods #angels #divinity #youngfrankenstein #terigarr #genewilder #melbrooks #shannonscottstoryist at Magnolia Cemetery

Note To Self: I would love books carved into my grave. Question is, which ones? Victor Hugo's "Ninety-Three" a good start. "Fahrenheit 451" after that. Maybe an X-Men comic or two.

The Odd Fellows were synonymous with the creation, layout and themes around Victorian cemeteries. It was not uncommon to find their lodges on the same road as cemeteries as you do The Oglethorpe Lodge near Bonaventure. I recently acquired this lecture podium from a lodge in Reno, NV that was built in 1913 but torn down in 1992. Their credo was "Visit The Sick & Dying. Educate The Orphan. Bury The Stranger." #oddfellows #ioof #orderofrebekkah #bonaventurecemetery #shannonspencerscott #shannonscottstoryist at Savannah, Georgia

So not surprising but while hiding out in Augusta during Hurricane Matthew, had to go commune with the dead. In this case, spent good part of day navigating the longest wooded dirt road ever to find the mass grave of 23 women and children massacred in 1760 by 100 Cherokee who felt their camp 40 miles from them was too close. Known as Long Cane Massacre Site near Troy, SC. Of the 250 they attacked, 9 of the children survived being scalped! Can you fathom!? Of the dead? Was John C Calhoun's grandmother at 76. He personally placed this stone to mark the remote site. When you stand there? All you hear are the winds which feel like spirits whipping around you. #longcanemassacresite #murder #massgrave #grave #tragedy #indians #nativeamerican #pioneers #augustaga #troysc #troysouthcarolina #johnccalhoun #cherokee #shannonscottstoryist at Long Cane Massacre Site

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

Emotive symbol. Just most people's reaction to seeing this will be proof and rightly so! So why is it on a Bonaventure headstone? Good question. Most people unaware that its not only found in the Jewish culture, but Hopi Indian, East Indian, Hindu, Buddhist, and so many others and that for some 12,000 years was symbolic of The Four Winds, The Four Corners, The Four Elementals and other benevolent things. Did you know that until the end of WWII that the American Air Force had a division with it on their shoulder patches and that pilots around the world upon finishing flight school were given a coin bearing this symbol that they always carried as good luck? In some sense this on a grave means, "Good luck in your greatest flight of all, back to your Heavenly home!" #swastika #hakenkreuz #gammadion #fylfot #tetraskelion #bonaventurecemetery #shannonscottstoryist

Think this person loves Bonaventure? This New Yorker stopped by my tour today and couldn't resist flashing some "Bird Girl" skin. The statue, done by Sylvia Shaw Judson stood in Bonaventure on the bluff for years and is now on display in The Jepson Center in Savannah. The photo of the original statue by Jack Leigh, graced the cover and made "Midnight In The Garden of Good & Evil" the perfect book package and was printed in 112 languages. #bonaventurecemetery #thebirdgirl #johnberendt #jackleigh #jepsoncenter #thetelfairmuseum #sylviashawjudson #midnightinthegardenofgoodandevil #shannonscottstoryist www.shannonscott.com at Savannah, Georgia

Every now and then I sneak out of here and go spy other cemeteries. Even though it was a gray day on Edisto Island, SC there was still much color to be found. #edistoisland #cemetery #greekcolumn #victorian #mausoleum #hauntings #shannonscottstoryist www.shannonscott.com at Edisto Island, South Carolina
