I enjoyed the walk about look at the iconography of the different plots. I have never really payed attention to the the stories the plot can tell. It is like the families own biography. From the simple iconography of angels to a lamb on a site which represents an infant who has passed. Another simple iconography like two joined hands could represent unity or togetherness. Also some of the plots that showed their professions like soldiers or brewers used different icons to present their professions. Taking this walk helps me put together how I would decorate my families burial site that would represents us well. I would definitely use the sign for unity or togetherness.
