Artistic Stonework

Another type of art that can be found in cemeteries is in the stonework, often on the tombstone rather than as a separate statue, but many times a massive stone piece serves as a work of art and a tombstone or memorial. These carvings can be spectacular, even whimsical, and they definitely add to the beauty of the cemetery.
