  3. Such times as I have a gravestone, I would want one like that, pointing skyward.

  4. A very peaceful photo. Is it an old gravestone there doesn't seem to be any markings on it but what a great symbol pointing upwards!

  5. Ooh, what an interesting grave. I have never seen one with a hand on it like that!

  6. Fascinating...seems to say so much without words. We live next door to a small Norman church - often wonder about the meaning behind some of the symbols and engravings.

  7. Interesting carving. I don't think I've seen your site for a while! It's a bit different from how I remember it.

    1. No, just one of the many graves I come across with no information as to the person or persons buried there.

    1. They went that way. Basically it means the went to Heaven, in case anyone was in any doubt where they ended up

  14. A finger like that has a whole new meaning nowadays. I see you have moved your taphophilia. I am tempted to do that too. Not sure how I would go about it. Will give it some thought.

  15. Yes, I noted your hand, in addition to my own. I will now keep my eyes peeled for variations of hands. I will let you know, should I find one in the pointing down position!! Hah ...
