Einar Jonsson, the sculptor of this marker, either hated the guy who he made it for or he just has a sick sense of humor

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.

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

Am I the only one who noticed this was in 1909, when not everyone was a perv? It depicts a boy drinking milk directly from the cow. *shrugs* I hate being a prude guys, I really do. :-|

"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. "

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.

Sarcasm ? No. It is old Scandinavian mythology. The stone depicts a scene from the creation of the first giant in that mythology.

"If you search for "Einar Jonsson, cow" don`t click on the first link. It said "white pride, worldwide" at the top. I think I`m probably in some database now. If you don`t hear from me again, you`re all witnesses."

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.

Wait, no that can`t be because when Niflheim melted Ymir was created and went he licked the ice and saw Buri and he had a Son, Bor who married a giant and they gave birth to Odin the cheif God...so, wtf are you talking about?

Close je_scream but not exact. Ymir was the father of the Giants that plagued the gods and humans. The gods was created by the cow. ;-)

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.

That looks too small for a cow, or too big of a human. Also, I don`t see what the guy is getting out of it.

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.

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.
