The story goes, that a man and his father were in the grave headstone business. When the Russians were in the land they made the father dig up these huge boulders to clear the land for farming, and so he would bring back to his place the stones. He craved out beautiful headstone. But the son started to crave images of Christ, and the Mother Mary, among other great works of art such as crosses, coat of arms, and other church related icon. He (the son) was said to have attendant a school to become a priest but did not completed the full term because of disagreement on doctines...and said he didn't need a piece of paper to do the "will" of God.
