Photographer's Note

I like to look for traces of life, it's a vivid picture of existence in this world.
During the walk around the museum I met two interesting tombstones next to the church.
Here is the second of them.
Here, I was fascinated by the miniature sculpture.
I wonder what she symbolizes?

It's a skylight, a fairy tale character.

Jan Karafiát (4 January 1846 — 31 January 1929) was a Czech clergyman of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren and author. He is best known for his classic children's book Broučci, the Czech language word for beetle, that was first published in the early 1870s. Traditional Czech figurines of fairylike insect people are based on the characters in the book. He is also known for his poetry, which often reflected his religious beliefs, additionally he was one of the reviewers of Bible kralická - the first Czech protestant translation of the Bible.(wiki)
