At the end of The Force Awakens, we see Rey find Luke Skywalker to return his lightsaber and he has his back to her. It appears that he is looking a what looks like a gravestone.

enter image description here EDIT: The view from the back. It looks like a cross at the top to resemble a gravestone

enter image description here It resembles one the Sceilig Mhichíl gravestones like this one below. (as Janus Bahs Jacquet noted in comments)

What is this? Is it a gravestone? If so, whose is it?

    It looks more like he's looking out over the cliff on the far side. – Jane S May 17 '16 at 7:47

    Answer 1 - it's just a rock, nothing more. Answer 2 - it's more than just a rock, and we'll find out what the story is in the future films. – RedCaio May 17 '16 at 10:09

    Sceilig Mhichíl (Skellig Michael) is full of gravestones—they’re pretty much everywhere. There’s a cemetery, but even outside the cemetery, there are gravestones scattered all over the top of the island. Despite what @phantom42 says, this does indeed look very much like a typical Sceilig gravestone; I would guess it probably is. Whether it has any significance in the movies is, as far as I know, as yet unknown. – Janus Bahs Jacquet May 17 '16 at 10:54
