Blessed are the Pure of Heart

Taliaferro Family

Bonaventure Cemetery

Savannah, Georgia

April 2004


This marble angel stands grandly over the Taliaferro family graves.  The hand gestures toward a cross lying flat with inscription, "Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God".   This beautifully sculpted piece has a distressing amount of damage to her wings and hands.  This is highly unusual in Bonaventure as the weather is very mild in Savannah.  Nevertheless, she remains a gorgeous piece of work.
