Grape Clusters

Oakland Cemetery, Sandusky, Ohio

Oakland Cemetery, Sandusky, Ohio

The cast-iron gravestone in the Oakland Cemetery at Sandusky, Ohio, is decorated with  grape clusters and leaves.

In Christianity the Eucharist, which is part of a religious ceremony also called Holy Communion, is a time when Christ’s followers are to do as Jesus instructed at the Last Supper.  Jesus broke bread and said, “This is my body” and drank wine and said, “This is my blood”.  The grape in cemetery symbolism represents the blood of Christ.
