Grasses surround a plate (symbolic of life) as if to protect. At the base, concrete stone (symbols of man's affect on the environment) protect the plate, and yet hold up a rose (symbol of death and passage of time).

An old adage, "you can't get blood from a stone" means that one can only get from life what is available, that it is useless to pursue getting what one wants from a source that is not able to give it.
