Lily of the Valley

Greenbush Cemetery, Lafayette, Indiana

On the back of this bluish-gray marker in the Greenbush Cemetery at Lafayette, Indiana, a delicate hand holds a lily of the valley sprig.

The lily of the valley is much like other lilies in funerary art as a symbol of innocence. It also symbolizes happiness, purity, and humility.
