Headstone, Kirkcaldy Auld Graveyard, Fife3D Model
Some people who wander through graveyards think that the skull and cross bones means that the person died of the black plague or was in fact a pirate as depicted in the Jolly Rodger flag shown on pirate ships from the 1800’s. This is not the fact and the skull and cross bones actually represents mortality or death. However, when I saw this headstone in the Kirkcaldy Auld Churchyard, Fife, Scotland, it looked like something from Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise and I don’t think it would be out of place in a pirates graveyard. I am going to publish another version of this stone with annotations explaining the carvings at a later date. Photographed and model built by Simon Goulding. The facecount is high as I wanted people to view the model in matcap.
