The Musky Scent Of Recent Male Completion: Seen a gallery of some of the Russian ones - pretty tacky.Do a GIS for "Barre Cemetery". Barre, Vermont is home to renowned granite quarries and generations of Italian craftsmen. Natch, some of them make their own grave markers. Some are works of art; some, ah, well, have a look.
BarkingUnicorn: FunkOut: You know what would make a cool headstone? A big Easter Island head.I liked the guy who had his wife's hooter carved on her gravestone. Or was it his? I forget.

ruta: If you're ever stuck in Buffalo and looking for something to do, the Forest Lawn Cemetery is worth a visit. Up until the Great Depression, there was a shiat-ton of money in Buffalo, so there are quite a few fancy mausoleums including one by Frank Lloyd Wright, although that one isn't among the most interesting. One of them has a granite sofa and arm chair in front of it for some damned reason. Maybe the deceased was a furniture magnate. Anyway, they're sculpted to look all squooshy and comfy, inviting you to flop down on them and lounge for a while except that they're cold, hard GRANITE.At least they're tastefully unadorned.I saw a gravestone for a recently deceased young man in a rural graveyard in New Zealand that had a granite bottle of Jim Beam and a granite bottle of Speight's beer on it. Death by drowning. Presumably alcohol was involved.
