Decatur, Illinois

The Ichthus:  Just in case you don't recognize the cross as a symbol of Christianity, this headstone adds a fish to clinch the association. Looks like the Greek letter α (alpha) doesn't it? Even more amazing: The Greek word for fish in Greek is ΙΧΘΥΣ (icthys). Those letters are recognized as standing for Jesus (I) Christ (X) God's (Θ) Son (Υ) Savior (Σ): Iesous Xristos Theou Yios Sotare. Boiling Springs Cemetery. [2015]
