Snapshots: Mysterious brotherhood symbols

Currently, I’m hard at work researching and photographing various cemeteries here in the Pacific NW for my Stones & Bones… project and one of the most enjoyable aspects is coming across a highly detailed carving. This example was found at the coal miners’ cemetery in Newcastle, WA.

While its representative group is familiar enough (The Knights of Pythias), I’m not seeing too many examples of this level of detail.

At least not yet.

I still have a few more places to visit and am looking forward to sharing what I find.
