Standing Sentinel

Hurst Green cemetery in Lancashire is a fascinating burial ground. I had a strange experience there during my first visit (click HERE to read my post). A few weeks later, I had a, photographically, more successful visit. This was a image from then. When I looked at it this evening, I was very taken with it. If you squint your eyes a little, it looks like two strangely shaped coffins with three alien-like figures standing sentinel behind. Can you see what I mean? Click once or twice on the image for a closer view.

Very strange. I think the Barrows had some geometric background and designed this unusual pattern themselves. The circles represent infinity (more pronounced in Celtic crosses), but the squares and the triangles [pyramids?] sugest what? Do the three "aliens" represent Calvary (well, one is engraved.)? And then in terms of the supernatural findings from your prior visit? Very eery!
