Two Symbols

The BRUNNER family monument in the Cave Hill Cemetery at Louisville, Kentucky, contain two symbols, both cast in bronze and set in and on the granite marker.

The first is a set of gates. The gates represent a passageway from one realm to the next.  The gates are the portal for saved souls to make their passage from the Earthly realm to the Heavenly realm upon Christ’s return.

The second symbol adorning the monument are inverted torches. The flame is symbolic of the soul.  The inverted torch represents a life that has been extinguished.
