Only Half the Story!

This headstone caught my eye. It is in Preston Cemetery in Lancashire. Something is missing from the top - maybe a cross - as the fixing peg is visible. The top half of the stonework bearing the main inscription has fallen away and . . . oh, I wish I knew what on the damaged ceramic badge near the top?

Yes indeed! The ceramic badge is especially intriguing.

What a mystery, I can almost envision the face upon this badge, framed in that curly hair.

Charles Cowling said...

Ah, well spotted, Nicole. Symbolic or representative? I wonder.

13,000! Woo!

Laurie said...

Great imagination, Nicole!
