Scroll Symbolism

These gravestones are engraved with a scroll which is a symbol of life and time. Rolled at both ends it indicates a life that is unfolding like a scroll of uncertain length where the past and future are hidden.

It can also suggest honor and commemoration; the Law and the Scriptures.

A scroll can also represent the Torah which represents the first five books of the Old Testament.
