Kelstern, Lincolnshire

The monument of Elizabeth South (died 1604) is a rather dramatic memento mori. She is seated as in life, with her hand on a hourglass and her foot on a skull. On either side of her are putto, one holding a spade and one with a skull and extinguished torch. Above her in the spandrel of the arch is a clock face.
