Miscellaneous 5

Thanks to everyone who voted and commented yesterday, which was much appreciated.
This eroded memorial is in the ruins of Melrose Abbey. The deceased died in 1635 at the age of 60 (1635 Štatis suŠ 60); 'nothing beside remains'.

Thanks for looking.

Nearly 400 years...I wonder what will be left of us after that time? 😁

Unusual limestone coating on the stone surface,Bill, looks like a very damp location. Begs the question of who we really are.......send answers to ôPhilosophical Friday EPZö 🙂

60 was not a bad age to achieve back then...he or she did well.

Wealthier people have always tended to live longer than the hoi polloi. Obviously.

The stone seems to be melting.

An interesting molten effect at the top - a cremation perhaps!!!!

Amazing, the date is so clear, after the passing of almost 400 years. Nice clear image, Bill.

Strange how a part of the stone is so weathered and the other part still very clear, I wonder if the upper part was exposed to water. It looks like its starting to melt. The image is appealing and its contents touching even after 400 years..

It certainly was! It was disestablished in 1609. This is how the artist J. M. W. Turner saw it in 1822.
