Nurture peacefulness with this poster of an angel lovingly reaching out over a monument, as if tending to the departed. Enhancing the scene’s Southern gothic feel are a cross topped with remembrance stones, oaks draped in Spanish moss, and a decorative iron fence.

Details

Your poster will be printed on classic poster paper especially for you after you order.

(Posters print without watermarks. I include those on web images so that no matter where they end up, people will be able to find my website.)

Posters ship rolled in a tube directly from my printmaker.

Benefits of this method include:

* You have more to choose from.

* You receive a brand-new poster, not a dusty relic warehoused for who-knows-how-long.

* Your order is environmentally sustainable because:

~ Resources are used only to create posters people want.

~ Eliminating warehouse space conserves energy.

~ Less shipping trips mean less impact from transportation.

Good for you, good for the planet!

History

This beloved monument in Savannah’s historic Bonaventure Cemetery (known best for the Bird Girl statue featured on the cover of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) memorializes Marie M. Barclay Taliaferro (1858-1893).

Three of Marie’s children with husband Charles Champe Taliaferro predeceased her and are buried in the same plot. The cross to the left of her monument belongs to son Benjamin, who died in 1889. Katherine and Marie Champe’s graves (not pictured) are next to his.

In 1893, Marie died at age 34. Perhaps this fourth loss was too much for Charles to bear, as he then took their three surviving children to live in Virginia.
