Decor from the "Hood" mausoleum in a local cemetery.Some research says the Hoods were Glasgow "fleshers" or butchers with a string of shops.They were into Egyptology, hence the carvings.
There`s a huge monkey puzzle tree by the mausoleum also....I can feel a nice story coming on.

Processed a couple of oldies looking for a contrasty look.The memento mori on these early 1700`s stones was the fashion at the time.People over the years have commonly mistaken them for pirate,templar and even plague grave markers!

They are rareish in Scotland and the occur also in the odd cemetery in England I believe.

No lettering on this old stone only the angel and cross. Quite unusual.

Angel and cross.

Westerbegraafplaats Enchede

Still in use, but there's an old part where people in the past bought the "eternal" right for their grave. I wonder how long "eternal" will mean in practice, but at this moment the rights still seem to be honoured.


1: Family grave, father, mother and their two (young) sons



2: Slowly falling over
