Hand of God

Just a couple of stones from the Rome Cemetery in Rome, NY that depict the hand of God reaching down to, presumably, remove some souls.

First, a hand reaching down and lifting up...rings?
Full view:
Also notable about the above stone is that is for Lewis Wilcox who was "killed at the Battle of Fredericksburg."

Secondly, and seen on two headstones, a hand emerging from the clouds to roughly grab a flower.
