Life is a blessing of God which is full of happiness and sorrow; and pain and pleasure. When a baby is born we celebrate with full energy and enthusiasm to welcome him in this world. On the other hand death is something we think of as terrible and horrible, but the fact is that life and death goes together. Without death there will be no life and its best example is of a seed. A seed has to be buried to give life to a beautiful plant which will then grow and provide benefit to this universe.
This Granite tombstone represents the value of life. A person who is born has to die as this world is mortal, but before dying he gives life to other humans. The tombstone depicts a picture of babies circled around it. These babies come into this world as innocent and loving creatures, but as they grow up they have to go through certain stages which might sometimes steal their innocence. This innocence is given back to them when they die and enter into eternity.
A person has to go through certain phases of life which, according to Shakespeare, start from the day of his birth and ends on the day of his death. The very first stage is infancy where everyone celebrates his life whereas he is totally unaware of what life is. Then after spending rest of his life and seeing the reality of this world he reaches the last phase that is old age. When the person reaches this stage he has seen all the beauty and happiness of life. He has celebrated his birthdays and shared pain and sorrows with his loved ones.
This headstone is the best way to show the importance of life. Every headstone can symbolize pain for losing the beloved, but not many can symbolize the importance of his life. Unity is another feature this monument symbolizes. We being human beings need one another at every stage of life and even after death.
It is interesting to note that a tombstone is a symbol of death, but this unique design is one in itself that depicts life. Death is also life, a life which is more stable and that lasts for eternity. It conveys a message of innocence and purity. Life never ends it just changes its shape. Once you lived in this world and now you live in eternity, so always celebrate your life.
