    I love how they used to do this. It hits a certain place in my soul, yet I can still appreciate its beauty.

    A very loving tribute to a child who was beautiful both in life and death.

    Nicely put, pleasestudyscience. What is in the child's hand?

    Some kind of flowers with berries. I am not a flower person. My ability to properly identify such is pretty much nil.

    That makes sense! Without being able to see a really enlarged view, it seemed like a carving of a cupped hand on a stick - which baffled me. I've seen fob charms in that figural shape, but couldn't figure out what it might be doing here!
