I absolutely love tombstone symbolism, the more unusual the better. Once you start to learn what the different symbols mean, it can actually tell you quite a bit about the person buried there. The tombstone below is one of my all time favorites.
I took this picture a couple of years ago at a cemetery near my house. This cemetery has different areas based on religious backgrounds and this was in the Jewish section. It caught my eye because of what I like to call the Spock hands at the top of the headstone. Hands like this indicate the symbol of a priestly blessing, otherwise known as a Kohen, which in Judaism indicates a descendant of the biblical high priest Aaron. In other words, this man was a Jewish priest.
