the Lion of Atlanta

in Oakland Cemetery

This is the monument to the unknown Confederate  dead. It’s so sad to see in person. something so strong looking so whipped. Oakland Cemetery isn’t as peaceful and safe looking as Hollywood Cemetery.

This sculpture is undamaged by vandals, probably because it has a real presence that is unsettling.
