    I think he`s suggesting the dead guy`s mum was a right cow!* Or that he was a rubbish farmer.

    *Cow (British casual insult) = similar to calling sum1 a bitch, but not as harsh. I think.

    It`s not a tombstone. It`s a sculpture by Einar Jónsson, an Icelandic sculptor. This statue is at the Einar Jónsson museum in Reykjavík. See ref (and photo) here . He was known for sculpting scenes from folk tales - perhaps this was his inspiration for this sculpture.

    More info on Einar at Wikipedia.

    Really, guys, you should have known better. Tombstones normally have at least both birth and death dates.

    Probably some sort of ritual meaning. There are what appears to be runes etched there, it could be a Nordic Mythic thing. The cow gave milk so that would have some maternal significance - maybe a child died or something.

    You guys are so dumb it makes me wonder. Ymir the father of all the Norse gods and goddesses drank the milk of Audumla (a cow) from which to survive and give birth to the Scandanavian race it`s symbolic to their culture don`t go knocking something you don`t know.

    I am talking about that Ymir did not lick any stones. It was Adhumbla that licked the shape of Buri out of the rocks. Ymirs decendants grew our of his armpits, and his left foot had a child with his right. They became the giants. Ymir had no part in the creation of the gods.

    That`s what I mean though, the God`s came from Ymir...lol, how are you going to take my words and put a literal spin on them to make them incorrect. When I said they came from Ymir, I mean they dripped down from his sweat...come on this is Lesson 1 in Norse creation lore. Don`t come at me like I don`t know anything cause I`ve studying this since middle school...I went through a Tolkien phase and it eventually bled into Norse mythology love.

    For those who don`t actually understand it, in the Olde Days (even before Lionhart`s time) if a mother died in childbirth and there were no other pregnant/new mothers in the area, it was common to put the baby on the teat of a cow or goat; obviously Emar just never got weaned.

    Iceland FTW :D

    But indeed, there`s in fact nothing wrong with this, it just looks a little wierd according to our own beliefs compared to theirs in 1909

    It`s not a tombstone. It`s a sculpture by Einar Jónsson, an Icelandic sculptor. This statue is at the Einar Jónsson museum in Reykjavík. See ref (and photo) here . He was known for sculpting scenes from folk tales - perhaps this was his inspiration for this sculpture.

    More info on Einar at Wikipedia.

    Really, guys, you should have known better. Tombstones normally have at least both birth and death dates.
