Vandals deface a prehistoric tomb with 'Harry Potter' symbols
MANILA, Philippines – No muggle or wizard could stop vandals from painting a prehistoric monument with the Deathly Hallows symbol and a quote from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
According to Spanish news site El Pais, the graffiti symbol was painted over a 4,000-year old dolmen in Casa dos Mourus in Vigo, Spain.
A photo tweeted by 9Gag shows the vandalism: the triangular Deathly Hallows symbol, along with the word “Always.”
The Deathly Hallows symbol is introduced in the final Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The symbol represents the elements that make a wizard triumph over death: the Invisibility Cloak, Resurrection Stone, and Elder Wand.
“Always” is a meaningful word among the Potter fandom, uttered by Professor Severus Snape in the final novel, when he is revealed to have been working for the good side all along.
