Beautiful piece of cemetery art! Do you know what all the imagery stands for?

It is a beautiful sculpture! The cross on a three-stepped base is usually called a Calvary Cross, related to Christianity. The three steps can represent the Trinity or the virtues of Faith, Hope, and Charity. The vine symbolizes the relationship between God and man. The lily is a symbol of innocence and purity. The wreath he is holding could represent a crown... Thank you both for visiting and commenting!
