Jewish Matzeva-Headstone?

Do you see what I see? 2 doves with their beaks down facing towards each other. I see 2 vav's with a shin between them - a zayin on the left - a shin in the middle and a bent over dalet that at first glance I thought could be a gimel. Nu? What do you see? 

Do leave in the comments links of other matzevot if you would be so kind to help me out. This was found on my great grandmother and grandfather's headstone in the year 1954 when grandma died - "zeide" died in 1946. My reader's know my story. 

Please email to those you know ie monument engravers, Jewish cemetery 
researchers, etc.. . so excited at the possibility of this indeed being a Jewish engraving. Please forward this post around the world. I would be forever grateful - thank you!


  1. Some context might help: What was your grandfather's name? Could you take a picture of the entire stone?

  2. If you don't feel comfortable with posting your relatives' names on your blog, you can write me privately:
