A symbolic gravestone in Yarrow Kirkyard
A symbolic gravestone in Yarrow Kirkyard
This old gravestone on the east side of the kirk features a symbol of immortality with a winged soul at the top representing the human spirit while the skull and crossed bones below are symbols of mortality. The horizontal hourglass and crossed spade and turf cutter below the skull are also symbols of mortality but they are partially obscured by moss.
This was taken in mid-December just before the sun dipped below the hills.
