Saturday Symbol: The Wheel

I don't find theses often so I wanted to share it.

The wheel symbol (broken or unbroken) representing eternity, continuation, and progress. The above is a pretty generic type of wheel. But there are also two specific types of wheels that can be found in cemeteries.

For example the eight-spoked Buddhist wheel of righteousnes.

And the circular eight-spoked wheel of the Church of World Messianity, with alternating fat and thin spokes.
Both of these are approved to be used on military stone.

  1. Reminds me of a line from Hamlet, Act IV Scene V:

    Ophelia: "O, how the wheel becomes it!"
