"Money for Heaven" 24x36" poster hanging in bedroom

Black and white poster print of an ornately carved headstone featuring a cross and crown, “IHS” symbol that looks like a dollar sign, and lilies. Simultaneously inspirational, romantic, and Gothic, this artwork will add a lovely touch to a wide variety of home decor styles – Victorian, vintage, cottage, farmhouse, shabby chic, and more. Photographed in Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta.

Symbolism

This beautiful, ornate headstone belongs to Kate Malone Sullivan, who was born in Ireland in 1840 and died in Atlanta, Georgia in 1901. The back of her headstone is almost as ornate as the front, which is unusual.

Located in Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery, the headstone was carved by the Crouch Marble & Granite Company, which supplied many other grave markers and mausoleums there.

The sheer amount of Victorian motifs carved into the stone are impressive. Those visible in this photo include:

* The crown and cross - sovereignty of the Lord

* Lilies - purity, innocence

* IHS (the symbol in the middle of the cross) - first three letters of Jesus’ name in Greek

* Drapes - mourning, death; in Victorian Atlanta, drapes with heavy tassels also signified worldly success

* Ivy - immortality, fidelity, undying affection, symbol of the Trinity

What intrigues me most about this headstone is the IHS symbol, which looks strikingly like a U.S. dollar sign.

While this resemblance likely isn’t intentional, its combination with the cross and crown brings to mind the complex, intertwined history of money, religion, and politics.

I’m sure there must be at least a few long papers or books on that topic, and it’s a bit much to get into here.

I will share a few questions for you to ponder, though:

* What’s the relationship between money and your spirituality?

* Is the way you spend money aligned with your needs?

* Is the way you spend money aligned with your values?

* When you think about money, what leaps to mind?

* What, if anything, do you need to change about the way you think of or handle money?
