"IHS": monogram of the name of Jesus Christ.
From the beginning of Christianity, the sacred name of Iesous Christos (Jesus Christ) is abbreviated in several ways.
The first three letters of the word "Jesus" in Greek are: IHC. These were transliterated into Latin as IHS.
Latin sense:
  "I": Jesus (Jesus), "H": Hominum (of men), "S": Salvator "(Savior) = Jesus, Savior of men. Although this does not represent the original Greek meaning, it is happily referred to and honor Jesus Christ.
Saint Ignatius of Loyola adopted the monogram on his seal as general of the Jesuits (1541), so it became the emblem of the order.
The photograph showing the symbol carved in stone was taken in the ruins of the San Ingancio Miní Jesuit Mission in the province of Misiones. Argentina. The monastery was built in the seventeenth century. They were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
