If a tombstone ever told a story...Click image to read the story! He was blind, mostly paralyzed and spoke only a few words, but was still able to touch many lives during his short time on Earth. #tombstone #art #inspiration
Inez Clarke In 1880, six-year-old Inez Clarke was struck and killed by a bolt of lighting. Her parents commissioned an artist to create a sculpture in her exact likeness and placed it over her grave, adding a transparent plexiglass box to protect it from the elements. It's an extremely life-like statues which in itself makes it a bit creepy. The scary part are the stories of the little girl disappearing from inside the box, most often during thunderstorms.
Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah is a most haunted necropolis; this statue was made famous from the cover of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil but had an uncanny reputation long before the book came out.
I think all of us have a sense of the legacy we want to leave behind when our time is up. Some people hope to change the world, through art, literature, or scientific discoveries. Others hope to raise a happy family and be remembered for generations to come. Meanwhile, still others find peace and satisfaction...
