SYMBOLS Stories of cultural life.

Hands (clasped / praying)

Often two hands are depicted as clasped together, especially on the tombs of married couples, where one person is leaving and the other is left behind.  

Two hands grasping one another typically symbolizes eternal friendship or eternal love (often used for married couples).  

Hands clasped in prayer depict the deceased as a pious person in life.
