Celtic Cross with IHS

A wheeled cross (a cross surrounded by a circle) represents eternity. The Celtic Revival of the 19th and 20th centuries led to this style of cross being popular for cemetery monuments.
The IHS monogram representing Jesus Christ is in the centre. It is an abbreviation of IHΣΟΥΣ - the Greek word for Jesus.
