A bed monument from a small churchyard in Essex UK. This bed also depicts many symbols like a book, skulls, bones and an Ouroboros (a snake biting its own tail and forming a circle symbolising eternity.)
Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris is possibly the most visited graveyard in the world, and its known as much for the beauty of its monuments as for the celebrity of its occupants. However, arguably the most dramatic tomb belongs to an author most people have never heard of.
This is just an amazingly beautiful grave stone. I could see this on a door leading into a fairy world. Info about the stone: Dr. Franz Leuffen, the author of a book concerning post-mortem examinations written in the 1860s. Dr. Leuffen died in 1900. The symbol in the center is (perhaps) the Eye of Providence. Melaten Cemetery, Cologne, Germany #headstone #gravestone #tombstone #symbolism
