Old Head Stones in Waterloo, Illinois

I photographed these two head stones in Waterloo, Illinois. They are both over 100 years old. I wondered what the IHS inscription within the cross meant. My research indicates that the IHS is a monogram representing iota-eta-sigma,the Greek word for Jesus.

What does it mean?

To me, this sculpture in downtown St. Louis evokes the same feelings in me as when I read the novel Atlas Shrugged - a very eerie feeling that I am living in a fallen and rusty world. (By the way, I do not feel that way about life.) What does it mean to you? That is the beauty or mystery of art. It evokes feelings of different shades and character in different people.
