In the past, instead of tombstones, graves were adorned with collections of stones, often gathered from the families’ own gardens, lending a more personal touch.

Orientation Towards the East

Modern graves are positioned to face the east, allowing the departed to witness the daily sunrise.

Symbolic Animal Carvings

Animals carved on graves hold special significance to each family. Lambs, for instance, are commonly depicted where children are laid to rest.

Varied Carving Representations

A multitude of symbols are employed to narrate stories about the deceased. Flowers or broken trees may indicate lives cut short, while clasped hands are often found on graves of couples yearning for a reunion in the afterlife.

The Significance of Obelisks

The Washington Monument stands as the world’s largest obelisk. Obelisks serve as a means to honor multiple departed individuals without individual gravestones
