This stone holds many symbols:

The symbol of wheat means harvest, prosperity, deceased of full years. The symbol of the lily portrays "resurrection and happiness". The ivy means clinging, memory of the deceased, longevity, despondency, and dependence. The scroll signifies wisdom, life and often used as a background for the inscription. The actual shape of the stone is that of a tablet which signifies the Ten Commandments.
