I love living in New England. I love the seasons, the landscape, the history, and the wildlife.
the broken rose bud symbol is so sad.
I will have to look around better the next time I'm at an old cemetery. Not sure that I've seen the hand with the finger pointing up before. I know I wouldn't had known what it meant but I do now!
That's fascinating. Any more grave knowledge you can pass on would be of interest as I'm always photographing headstones and didn't know the significance of either of those.
Just read your previous funerary art post as well. I'm learning a lot - many thanks.
I have to go down to Boston sometime soon and get some photos from the old graveyards. There is one with a skeleton snuffing out the candle of life. The artwork is really very interesting.
Sweet poem on that last tombstone about the angel band.
