Hand reaches Over

I've not come across this sort of grave topping before. I found it slightly unnerving to see a disembodied hand, clutching a wreath, draped over the top of a headstone. It was very striking, to say the least. There was one other in the Great Harwood Cemetery in Lancashire but not so well-preserved.

If you look at it quickly, it looks like someone might be behind the headstone. It is kind of creepy.
