If I were a hammer…


I’ve only seen an anvil headstone in one other place, and that was up in Woodinville, Washington. According to the Gravestone Symbolism site, in addition to representing a blacksmith, anvils metaphorically symbolize the creation/forging of the universe. And isn’t interesting how the horseshoe to the left is pointing down, showing that all the luck has run out?

This one is located in my new favorite graveyard at Graveyard Winery.
