Question: What does the symbol for Death Symbols mean? by admin | Jan 22, 2018 | Did You Know | 0 comments Answer: Drawings of death ships, dolphins and seahorses, frequently replaced by demonic figures (Charon, with his hammer resembling a double headed ax, or Tuchulcha, with snakes in his hands that resemble devils.) Skeletons and skulls, dry bones. In Greek Art a church ship with anchor, cross as a mast and dove. The olive branch, the snail sleeping in it’s grave-like shell, and the butterfly. The scythe or sickle of the grim reaper. He also carries a bow and arrow, weapons of death or an hourglass. Black is a symbolic color of death or, in the far east, the white Lilly. A skeleton with a scythe or a bow and arrow often in a monks cowl. Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
