these are to push the idea of the icon. A shovel is to bury things; tho rots of trees and plants treasure, bodies ( not normally), but It truly does reinforce the idea of shovel. the text is integrated with it by cropping referencing itself. The body icon paired with the dead tree reinforces the idea of death. both are fallen and not getting up. both are quantifiable but in the long run will not be remembered. the collateral that the tree is anchors the icon to the lifeless body the icon represents.
