The gravestone below is an example of Stone 16 from the Plympton County cemetery, as depicted in Figure 3 of the study by James Deetz and Edwin Dethlefsen entitled Death's Head, Cherub, Urn and Willow.
This stone represents further evolution of the second, major branch of stylistic developments departing from Stone 5. The undulating lines of the feathers have been transformed into surrounding rings of multiple halos. The heart-shaped mouth has been modified into a simple "T" shape.
