About Angel Headstone Monuments
An angel headstone monument is a wonderful way to honor a loved one who has died. Typically a separate statue, it sits on top of a headstone, but oftentimes can be found as part of it as well. Angels symbolize spirituality and are commonly found in a variety of poses, each having a different meaning.
This cherub is praying for the person who died. Any angel headstone monument in this type of a pose represents the deceased person's soul on its way to heaven.
A headstone monument or statue of a weeping angel symbolizes deep grief over an untimely death. If the angel is leaned over or onto the headstone itself, that is a representation of an angel guarding the grave.
The two angels on a headstone monument typically represent two of God's messengers: Michael and Gabriel.
An angel sounding a trumpet symbolizes the day of judgment or the call to resurrection.
An angel statue in flight or posed as if it was flying represents a rebirth of the deceased person's soul.
Loss of a Child
A statue of a child -- in this case a little girl -- represents the young one who died too soon.
While the varying angel poses have different symbolic meanings, all of the angel headstone monuments are peaceful and serene.
